[ARCHIVED] Citizen's Guide to the Budget

Citizens Guide to the Budget Cover Image

This Citizen’s Guide to the Budget has been developed as part of our continuing efforts to make the Town budget more understandable and accessible. The guide is designed to provide an overview of how the budget is developed and how the Town raises revenue and spends funds. The Annual budget is a reflection our community’s values, priorities, goals, and the Town’s annual income and spending plan that serves as a roadmap for the delivery of services to the residents of Shrewsbury. The budget provides an itemized account of planned spending and establishes a priority of how funds are allocated between Town departments and program areas.


Budget documents are traditionally difficult to read. The budget development is an open process and we hope residents will find this information helpful in furthering their understanding of the budget as well as increasing participation in the annual budget process.

Shrewsbury is part of a growing movement of Massachusetts municipalities that are taking transparency to a new level on the ClearGov platform, which also showcases basic profiles of every municipality in the country. This new transparency center will allow residents to see visual breakdowns of Shrewsbury’s finances, as well as insights into the town’s demographics and population.
