FY'20: Weston Budget Process as described by LWV of Weston publication
CONTENTS OF THIS PAGE:
Board of Selectmen and the artist's version of relative fiscal impact prior to any reductions by Finance Board.
Board of Education develops budget
separately (and the Selectmen can't cut it) to begin with...speaking of which, Administration first - the Proposed School Budget here
What's up around the "Gold Coast?" Elsewhere?
MEETING SCHEDULED IN THE OVER ALL BUDGET PROCESS WHICH INCLUDES THE CAPITAL BUDGET:
SCHOOL BUDGET CALENDAR
ESTABLISH STUDENT VOLUNTEER CORPS FOR CREDIT? Just our idea!
First we've seen of Education budget - new course proposed on government/politics/civics or whatever (full
year). About Town hopes someone might ask about involvement of
juniors and senior in how a town budget is developed! And fwiw,
how local government works.
PROPOSED SCHOOL BUDGET
Some things will change, but Board of Education issuing their
budget as early as possible. We note that Weston-Today will have a
report or two or three...on the Education Budget before it arrives at
either the Board of Selectmen, who cannot take action on it, or the
Board of Finance who, after their own Public Hearing, can.
This is the process we watch as closely as possible.
Elsewhere means other school districts as well as other levels of governments.
