"if the town moves forward with another round of cuts instead, he wouldn’t know where to make them"

From the Twitterverse, comes notice of budget discussions not far away in North Attleboro.

"Public safety departments made their case in support of a Proposition 2 1/2 override Thursday, not with dire forecasts or threats of cuts to come if they don’t see the influx of cash, but with pleas to restore what’s already been stripped from their budgets. 
If more cuts come, they said during a three-hour meeting before selectmen, they wouldn’t know how to absorb them. 
The meeting was the first of three before selectmen are expected to come up with a dollar amount for a tax increase put to vote this April."

Cutting to balance budgets is only one way. There are others, lets have the conversation about what matters. If Franklin is facing a $3M shortfall for the FY 2019 budget, what are we going to do?

Events to find information and join the conversation:
  • Jan 27 - Franklin Town Government 101

  • Feb 13 - Legislative Forum on School Funding
