The Town Charter states that the Budget Committee shall be made up of twelve (12) elected members, serving three (3) year staggered terms and shall be elected by secret ballot. Amended to seven (7) elected members on June 10, 2008.
The Budget Committee meets each year usually starting in January and ending in April. Committee members oversee the budget requests from each civic and charitable organization, Town boards and committees and all Town Departments. The primary goal of the Budget Committee is to recommend a budget that is fiscally responsible to provide the needed services while keeping any property tax increases as small as possible.
Current Budget Committee Members are listed above.
