Learn How Our Town’s Budget Works, 2/17

A forum, Our Town, Our Money, is being planned by the Town Meeting Coordinating Committee for Tuesday, February 17th at 7:00 PM in the Town Room of the Amherst Town Hall.

The purpose of the meeting is to explain how the Town of Amherst creates its budget and how and when residents can most effectively make budget requests. Presenters will be Finance Director Sandy Pooler, Finance Committee Chair Kay Moran, School Finance Director Sean Mangano, and former member of the Select Board Gerry Weiss.

Understanding the town budget and how it is formed is important for members of Town Meeting and all those interested in town government. This forum will be an opportunity to learn about the budget process. There will be time for questions during the program.
