September Budget Approved
The select board approved the town’s $1,929,922 operating budget for the month of September at its Aug. 25 meeting. This is the final time the select board will have to approve a monthly budget, as a fiscal year 2021 budget will be voted on at town meeting on Sept. 12.
Town Moderator Dan Silverman is pushing to get every select board member a microphone for the Sept.12 town meeting. He said it is not only safer to avoid passing around microphones, but it will also keep the meeting as short as possible.
“This is an incredibly long warrant,” he said. “If we start at 10, I am hoping we can be done by one o’clock.” Board member Justina Carlson emphasized the importance of controlling the meeting’s length, saying, “Everybody always has one more thing to say.” Silverman is also looking for about 12 more volunteers to help with various town meeting tasks, like setting up chairs and helping with the check-in lines.
