Winchester residents approve plan to save schools

Posted: Updated:
WINCHESTER, CT (WFSB) -

Voters in Winchester have approved a $2 million loan from Bank of America to keep the school system operational until December.

The move comes after former Finance Director Henry Centrella was arrested after being accused of embezzling at least $2.5 million over the past five years.

Almost 7,000 people were eligible to vote, but only 16 percent of voters cast a ballot on the measure.

The town said it promises to pay back the loan with state aid starting next year.
