Results of Town Reserves Forum

In February, the Town held two public forums to present and discuss options for using the Town’s reserve funds for new or expanded programs, services or special initiatives. These options were developed by the Town’s Long Range Planning Committee based on the results of the questionnaire that was sent to every Town household in early 2014. The final results presented to the Town Council is available here.
