The Bethlehem Board of Selectmen’s proposed 2022 operating budget survived a motion to cut during Tuesday’s town deliberative session. Selectmen are proposing a $3.182 million operating budget. Resident Chris McGrath, who submitted the required five minimum signatures for a secret ballot vote, made a motion to reduce the budget by $126,000. That motion failed in a 16-27 vote.The default budget is $2.859 million. The only article amended was a social services article from the Littleton-based nonprofit Pathways Pregnancy Care Center.
