EAST GREENWICH â€” Once Town Council president Michael Isaacs said Monday evening that the motion for the 2012-13 fiscal budget passed, fellow Councilman Mark Gee said â€˜hallelujahâ€™ in a minor joking fashion.

The East Greenwich Town Council approved the new budget at $50, 680,585, which is an increase of $3,202,310 â€“ or 6.31 percent â€“ from last yearâ€™s budget by a 3-1 margin, one day before the budget had to be adopted.
