On Thursday, November 7th at 6:00 p.m., there will be a Financial Indicators Meeting to discuss the financial condition of the Town. This is the first step in building the FY21 budget for the Town and the schools. (In previous years, this has been called the “Four Boards” meeting.) Members of the Town Council, Library Board of Trustees, and elementary and regional School Committees will be in attendance. The public is welcome to attend to listen to the presentation by the Town Manager and finance staff.
Immediately following the Financial Indicators Meeting, at 7:00 p.m., there will be a Public Forum on the Town Budget. Both sessions will be held in the Town Room of Amherst Town Hall.
Per the Amherst Home Rule Charter Section 5.3:
"This forum is intended for the Town Council and the Town Manager to present priorities, context based on prior years’ budgets, revenue and expenditure forecasts, and other relevant information, and to solicit feedback from the public."
The public is encouraged to attend these back-to-back sessions as an opportunity to learn and engage with Town officials on these key issues.
