Town departments are preparing to present their budgets for FY2016 to the Finance Committee on 4/22
No one is crying wolf. The threats are very real.
Meet the Finance Committee
BOS meeting where Keith Lapointe addressed the recommendation for NA residents to fund the operating budget through donations.
The reason behind the call for the emergency BOS meeting.
The Finance Committee meeting where they address the BOS recommendation of equal cuts across the board.
Looks like the old Bait and Switch was played on North Attleboro voters.
Note: This is the meeting where the BOS decide to take back the recommendation that they made just prior to the election that stated they would protect schools and public safety. In this meeting, they, instead, voted to recommend equal cuts to all departments
If that’s not a slap across the face of everyone who asked for help, I don’t know what is.
Note: This was when the BOS stated that if the override did not pass, they would recommend schools and public safety would be protected from budget cuts, thereby causing confusion among voters
