In preparation for the Finance Committee budget hearings scheduled for

I thought it might be helpful to read the budget narrative our Town Administrator Jamie Hellen wrote and shares as part of the FY 2021 budget package.

Links to the budget documents and budget page are included in the show notes. The individual agenda documents for each of the budget hearings are also included.

The recording runs about 19 minutes, so let’s listen to the budget narrative for FY 2021
