Overview

The Finance Committee is a committee of 7 members appointed for terms of 3 years, each so arranged that the terms of as nearly an equal number of members as is possible shall expire each year. The members are appointed by a committee consisting of 1 member of the Select Board chosen by the Select Board; 1 member of the School Committee chosen by the SC; and the Town Moderator.

The Finance Committee has the following duties, in accordance with the Town's Charter, Section 2-1(c):

  1. The Finance Committee shall have the primary responsibility to report to the Town Meeting on the proposed budget of the Town Manager and all warrant articles having a fiscal impact on the Town, as more particularly detailed in the Charter, Town Bylaws, and the laws of the Commonwealth; before preparing its final recommendations, the Finance Committee shall hold 1 or more Public Hearings to permit public discussion on the subject matter of the articles contained in the warrant.
  2. After the Town Manager has prepared the budget, the Finance Committee shall consult with the Town Manager and recommend any modifications it deems appropriate before the budget is filed with the Town Clerk.
  3. The Finance Committee shall have all other powers conferred on finance committees by the General Laws.
  4. For information on the Town's financial policies, please refer to the Select Board Policies and Procedures (PDF) on the Select Board Page.
