"The Board of Finance meets Tuesday, May 12, to vote on projected budgets for town and schools and to present a proposed budget and mill rate. To view the meeting, visit wiltonct.org. After that, the Board of Finance will assemble a summary of fiscal year 2021 numbers ending up with the proposed mill rate.

"The FY21 Financial Summary will be posted on the town’s website and people may comment by email until Monday, June 1, when the board will meet again to adopt the Board of Selectmen and Board of Education budgets and set the mill rate. Finance board members may choose at that time to increase or decrease the rate.

"Since there will be no Annual Town Meeting this year because of the pandemic, the board is charged by the Board of Selectmen with adopting the town and school budgets.

"Because of this, Rutishauser stressed the only way for citizens to be heard and the board to gauge public opinion is for people to write in. The board may be emailed through wiltonct.org or at boardoffinance@wiltonct.org."
