Questions for the Forum

If you don't have questions for the discussion this evening on the long term plan, here are a few to help get you started:

  1. Page 12, the color bars are not labeled, what do they represent?
  2. How does a salary "freeze" still allow for increases due to step and lane changes?
  3. Which regionalization effort will bring the best dollar savings? Library and recreation efforts are small dollars.
  4. What unfunded mandates should be challenged to improve our expenses?
  5. If overrides are in our future, how many? when? and how big do they need to be? to get us out of this mess?
  6. Is the Town Council committed to keep this long range plan up to date (since previous efforts apparently failed)?
  7. Will the Town develop a "capital budget" as the auditors recently recommended?
