FY20 Proposed Budget Presentations and Discussions

The Town Manager and the School Superintendent will be presenting their proposed budgets to the Selectmen and the School Committee for fiscal year 2020. On January 22nd, the School Committee will receive the Superintendent's proposed school budget and will continue its budget discussions with various school departments on January 28th (Middle and High schools, Operations (buildings and grounds, transportation, utilities), and Technology) and 31st (Elementary schools, Special Education, Central Office, and Metco). 

The Town Manager will be presenting his proposed operating budget to the Finance Committee on January 24th. The Selectmen will receive the Town Manager's proposed budget in early February (date to be determined, see the online meeting calendar for updates). 

All public meetings are posted on the Town's online meeting calendar at Weston.org/Meetings and residents can subscribe to receive email or text notifications when the agendas of these meetings are posted online (more on that below). Due to the Town Hall elevator being out of service at this time, it is important to check the Meeting Calendar to verify the meeting location and time.


Finance Committee Review

During Budget Season, the Finance Committee meets weekly on Thursdays (with the exception of a meeting scheduled for February 13) to review the different pieces of the town and school budgets. All of these meetings are open to the public and are posted on the Town's online meeting calendar. Residents interested in the deeper details of the Town’s operating budget are encouraged to attend the Finance Committee discussions and review. 

The FY20 Operating Budget will be finalized through these meetings and will be presented in a public hearing on April 29th at 7:00 p.m. in the Town Hall Auditorium before it is brought to Town Meeting on May 6th for final approval by the voters of Weston.
