Committee Overview

The School Committee Chair in conjunction with the Select Board Chair and the Finance Committee Chair will schedule the first meeting of the fiscal year by August. At the first meeting of each fiscal year, the Budget Subcommittee shall elect a Chairperson, and Vice Chairperson from its membership. In the event a vacancy occurs in any of these offices, the Budget Subcommittee shall hold a special meeting for the purpose of electing one of its members to fill such vacancy. The Budget Subcommittee shall meet at the call of the Chairperson. 

A simple majority of Budget Subcommittee members will constitute a quorum for voting purposes. 

The Budget Subcommittee's role shall be advisory in nature but, through a collaborative and cooperative process, members will broadly review and consider all aspects of the annual budget process, and develop recommendations to their respective committee.
