FM #386 Finance Committee Mtg - 11/09/20

Updated about 18 days ago.

FM #386 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 386 in the series.

This session shares the Finance Committee meeting held on Monday, Nov 9, 2020.

The meeting was conducted in a hybrid format: members of the Finance Committee and Town Administration personnel were in the Council Chambers, the public was remote via Zoom conference bridge, all to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

Quick Recap:
- No major cuts for FY 2021 budget given the level funding plus provided by State
- Adding $75K to each of the Town Clerk and Recreation budgets (to cover for TC - election expenses and Rec for summer camps)
- Increasing New Growth by $1M in light of performance on revenues to date during COVID-19
- Next meetings Nov 17 (Beaver St interceptor) and Dec 15 (topic TBD)
- With new member participating there is some good Q&A to provide insights on process and dollar flows

The show notes contain links to the meeting agenda and my notes.

The meeting runs about 75 minutes, so let’s listen to the Finance Committee meeting for Nov 9, 2020
