The Town is working with the Board of Finance to adopt the budget within the scope of Governor Lamont's Executive Orders put in place in light of the COVID19 pandemic.
Executive Order 7I suspends the in-person budget adoption requirements for municipalities. It also requires the municipality take all reasonable steps to publicize the draft budget and to provide for the public to make timely comments.
To this end, we are using SurveyMonkey to enable you to submit comments. You will be able you to ask up to five (5) questions of the Board of Education, Board of Finance, and Board of Selectmen about the budget. There's even a comment box at the end if you would just like to offer a comment.
The comment period is open till May 6th at 11:59pm. Once we receive all the submissions, they will be sent to each board for their response, which will then be read in for discussion at the Board of Finance's May 19th meeting, where the public will be also allowed to ask questions. The Board of Finance will then adjourn to a special meeting to approve the budget and set the mill rate.
