The Budget Overview
A summary of the town budget
The FY2018 town budget is 394 pages and can be found on the town website. As most humans find that document to be a bit overwhelming, below please view this Budget-in-a-Nutshell approach allowing an easier inspection of the budget.
Please take note of lines K and R showing the amount of capital expense for the school and the municipal. These two lines total over $6 million in the FY2018 budget. Debt is typically used to cover capital expenses. On the home page is a general obligation debt chart showing the town's history of not paying down debt levels resulting from large projects.
