     The Board of Finance consists of six members, elected for 6 year terms. Its primary function is to recommend a budget and mill rate at the Annual Town Meeting. The Board of Finance also has the power to approve special appropriations and transfers upon request of the Board of Selectmen or the Board of Education. It has specific responsibility for determining the method and extent of financial record keeping, arranging for the annual audit of the Town records and publishing the annual Town report.  
     The major responsibility of the Board of Finance is to review all requests for expenditures for town activities, to evaluate these requests, and to recommend to the town meeting a budget that, in its judgment, meets all the town’s expenditure needs within its financial resources. We facilitate this task through public meetings and public hearings.

2021-2022 Proposed Budgets

To Our Residents, 

The Boards of Selectmen, Education and Finance have met throughout the winter to prepare budgets for the fiscal year 2021-’22; these budgets for both the town and the schools are here on the website for public perusal and input. New town assessments have been completed in a 5-year revaluation and an important goal of the Boards of Selectmen and Finance is to hopefully reduce the mill rate for property taxation due to the increases in the Grand List 5-year assessments. Copies of the budgets will also be available for review in the Town Hall lobby M-F 9am-3:30pm.  We ask for any questions or comments to be addressed at until April 12th, 2021. A public hearing will be held remotely on Monday April 19th, 2021. Thank you.


For copies of minutes, that are not posted, please contact the Town Clerk’s Office, 860-435-5182.
