The Town is seeking applicants for the Finance Committee. The new Town Charter created a Finance Committee of members of the Town Council. The Town Council decided to appoint five of its own Councilors AND to expand the membership of the Finance Committee to include four members of the public. As required by the Charter, the members of the public on the Finance Committee “shall have a voice but no vote in the Finance Committee’s deliberations.”
The Finance Committee shall review all annual budgets, supplemental budgets and other appropriations, and financial transfer; the capital inventory and capital improvement program and the infrastructure; the purchase, sale, or leasing of land and/or buildings; and borrowing and debt. The full charge for the Finance Committee, which was adopted by the Town Council on December 17th, can be found on the Town’s website.
The Town actively seeks a diverse pool of applicants to serve on all boards and committees. If you are interested in volunteering to serve on the Finance Committee, please fill out a Community Activity Form at: https://www.amherstma.gov/caf
