We are five weeks into the new fiscal year and the town is in limbo as we await a state budget and decisions on proposed cuts to municipal aid and the proposal to require Wilton to assume a share of the cost of the teacher pension.
The Board of Selectmen is taking a proactive approach to prepare for any outcome. Department heads, the Police and Fire Commissions and I are developing a fiscal year (FY) 2018 “plan B” budget to present to the Board of Selectmen. This will give us a road map should any aid reductions or pension shifting be approved. It also gives us a jump on the FY 2019 budget.
