A newly appointed long-range financial planning committee hopes to sit down with Arlington officials for guidance on long-term financial planning, since both towns have faced similar fiscal challenges.

Town Council agreed to create the committee last month, giving it a broad mission to produce a three- to five-year financial plan for the town, and voted to allow council Chairman Christopher Feeley to appoint its members.

Town Council unanimously agreed to Feeley's appointments to the nine-member committee on June 4: residents Douglas Hardesty and Gwynne Wilschek; Finance Committee Chairman Jim Roche and member Rebecca Cameron; School Committee members Roberta Trahan and Matt Kelly; Council Vice Chairwoman Deborah Bartlett and Councilors Shannon Zollo and Stephen Whalen.

The new committee picked officers at its first meeting Wednesday night.

"One thing good about (the meeting) is, we got right to work. We elected Jim Roche chairman, and Doug Hardesty vice chairman," said Whalen, noting Hardesty is an auditor with Deloitte & Touche, one of the biggest auditing firms in the country.
