Wait, You mean the Board of Finance is really important?
The Board of Finance is probably the least well known of the important Town boards. Everyone has a good idea of the duties of the Board of Selectmen, Education and Planning. But few realize the important responsibilities of the Board of Finance. The Board is most visible during the annual budget and mill rate determination process. But they also have on going responsibilities for approving supplemental appropriations, reviewing bond proposals, and approving Town investments. In short, they are fiscal watchdogs, and members require a thorough knowledge of public, and commercial finance. And we can find no better candidates for the Board than Sandra Arkel, and Frank Bria.
