Development of FY2015-2016 Budget

Through the Town's annual budget process, the Town Council makes decisions on the level and types of services provided to residents with local, State and federal funds.

Adoption of a budget determines in many respects the level of resources to be available for Town services over the coming budget year. The budget process is one of the most important functions and responsibilities of the Council, and it is also a key opportunity for residents’ participation in Town government.

The Town's 2020 Comprehensive Plan will help guide the development of this and future budgets.
