The plaintiffs, taxpayers of the towns of Middlebury and Southbury, brought this action in the Superior Court seeking a declaratory judgment to determine whether a referendum held in those towns resulted in an authorization for the appropriation of funds for the purchase of land, for the construction of a new regional high school, and for alterations to the present high school, and in an authorization to issue bonds and notes to defray that appropriation. The plaintiffs also sought incidental injunctive relief. The court overruled a claim that the plaintiffs lacked the necessary standing as taxpayers to maintain the action and decided that the referendum resulted in a valid appropriation and authorization. The plaintiffs have appealed, raising the issue of whether the referendum required a majority vote of the regional school district as a whole, pursuant to General Statutes 10-56, or a majority of each town, pursuant to General Statutes 10-47c. The parties submitted the case to the trial court upon a written stipulation of facts.
