Service Review

Each year, as a part of the budget process, council reviews the programs and services that the municipality provides. This process confirms the level of service for each program and the associated budget estimates. During Service Review, potential new projects, programs or service levels are identified and debated. Service Review is held during Governance and Finance Committee meetings. All meetings are open to the public. 

Following completion of Service Review, Town Council is ready to finalize the budget for the year ahead, which affects the property tax rate set in the spring.

Public input is welcome at the beginning of each day on the topics for that day.
