What We Do
The Finance Committee consists of nine members appointed by the Board of Selectmen to staggered three-year terms.

The Finance Committee functions in an advisory capacity for all financial matters of the Town.

The Committee reviews the budgets of all town departments and holds a public hearing on all Town Meeting warrant articles calling for the expenditure of Town funds. The Finance Committee's recommendations in favor, in opposition, to table or to indefinitely postpone these articles are included in the Report of the Finance Committee that is delivered to each home prior to Town Meeting. Copies of this report are also available at Town Meeting.

It should be noted that the committee may take a final position on some articles on the floor of Town Meeting that varies from the printed report. In the event of a Special Town Meeting (a Town Meeting called at any time other than the Annual Town Meeting), the Finance Committee's recommendations are distributed to the voters at the meeting.

When We Meet
The Finance Committee meets at least monthly, usually on a Tuesday, at the Mary Alley Municipal Building lower-level conference room. The committee meets monthly from June to November and more frequently from December to May to prepare for the Annual Town Meeting. All meeting dates are posted at Abbot Hall, 188 Washington Street.
