Budget

The municipal fiscal cycle commences on July 1st, concluding on June 30th. Each spring, in anticipation of the forthcoming fiscal year, the Town methodically assesses its revenues and outlines its expenditures. This evaluation is facilitated through a sequence of open public meetings convened by the Town Council, fostering transparency as they scrutinize, deliberate, and endorse the Town’s annual budget. This webpage serves as a repository, detailing the procedural steps and accompanying documents integral to this transparent process.
