About the Committee


The Finance Committee is comprised of 7 members appointed by the Town Moderator for 3-year terms. The Finance Committee is the authorizing body for expenditures from the Reserve Fund, which are designated funds within the budget set aside for extraordinary and/or unforeseen expenditures, including deficits in snow and ice operations.

The Finance Committee considers all articles in warrants for all Town Meetings and/or referendum. The Committee deliberates and provides a report in writing as to its recommendation for each Article.

The Finance Committee holds one or more public hearings with respect to the Warrant and distributes its report to each registered voter household and/or provides the same at convenient distribution places such as the town website. The report states the total amount of appropriation recommended, and the Finance Committee may, at its option, include the approximate tax rate based upon such recommendation.
