Finance Committee

About the Committee 

The Finance Committee is established under Chapter 39, Section 16 which requires every town whose property valuation exceeds 1 million dollars to have such a committee.

It is the duty of the Finance Committee to:

  • Advise and make recommendations to town officers, town meeting members, boards, committees and departments (Section 3 Article 3)
  • Consider all municipal questions relating to administration, finance, budgets and other municipal affairs (Section 4 - Article 3
  • Control the town Reserve Fund (Section 5 Article 3)

The current structure of the Finance Committee was established with the adoption of Article 23 of the General Town bylaws initially on December 11, 1920. The committee consists of 9 voters appointed to 3-year terms by the Town Moderator.
