Westborough’s Advisory Finance Committee seeks residents’ opinions

Residents expect municipal government to provide services in the most effective and efficient manner possible, the level and quality of which are dependent in part on the town’s financial and human resources. Westborough, like many other communities, is faced with the challenge of providing quality services to its residents while experiencing significant fiscal constraints.

The AFC, which is responsible for making financial and other recommendations at Town Meeting as it deems best for the interest of the town and its residents, plans to consider survey responses together with all other data points that are normally reviewed during its preparations for Town Meeting. Town residents are always welcome to address the AFC during their meetings but this form of input may be more accessible to a broader number of residents. A limited number of printed copies will also be available at Town Hall, the library and the Senior Center. All submissions will be received anonymously, unless a resident wishes to give the AFC their contact information for a potential follow-up.

Deadline for the survey is Friday, Nov. 19. Results will be compiled and announced in January 2012 during an AFC regular meeting. Residents are welcome and encouraged to attend when the results will be announced; watch for the AFC agenda to be posted on www.town.westborough.ma.us. To contact members of the AFC with any questions. Send e-mail to bcasemyr@town.westborough.ma.us.
