School Committee and Town Council members will meet tomorrow night to discuss the town’s budget, which the council had voted unanimously to reopen on Oct. 5, more than three months into the fiscal year. The council’s decision, described by Town Administrator Jeffrey Nutting as “extremely unusual,” followed the School Committee’s announcement of pay raises for teachers. Town Council members said they consider the increases fiscally irresponsible in a year marked by townwide pay freezes and job cuts. The public meeting is slated for 7 p.m. in Town Hall. - Evan Allen
