This article was slated to be about the budget. I had planned to review the process that the Finance Committee and Town staff undertook, to get into the weeds and explain the tax rate computation worksheet, and possibly even humble-brag that we met our council goals. But if you are anything like me, the world feels very heavy lately. So heavy that I’m not confident many have the bandwidth right now to read even the most enthralling summary of our municipal budget (If you are interested in taking a closer look at this year's budget, I promise there is a wealth of information available on the Town website).
