Town Administrator

Pepperellians -
The FY2020 budget has been reviewed extensively. As you may have heard, the town has made significant cuts - nearly $800,000 of them and plans to use another $600,000 from savings to balance the FY2020 budget.  The cuts include four layoffs, and the reduction of reserve funds and capital spending. It is truly a dire budget.
 
We are also proposing a tax override of $1.4 million which would restore the cuts and preserve the savings. To the left of this message is a link to a page full of information about the process and our financial position.  Please review as you consider this important decision.

The town has local elections on April 22nd, a Town Meeting on May 6th, and a special election for the tax override question, on May 13th.

Thank you,

Andrew MacLean
Town Administrator
