Finance & Warrant Commission (FinCom)

 FinCom News:

October 2017

Welcome to the FinCom 2017-2018 Season.

As we enter the 2017-2018 Annual Town Meeting season, the Finance and Warrant Commission (FinCom) would like to encourage all residents to attend our many meetings and public hearings starting on September 12, 2017 and ending at our final Public Hearing on March 27, 2018.  Your attendance and input provide invaluable to our members' ability to make recommendations on all the Warrant Articles that come before them.  Please find the list of all meeting dates listed below. 

The FinCom 2017 Annual Report Warrant and Recommendations for Annual Town Meeting Notice is still available on this website under Annual Town Meeting Information.  Or click this link:

http://westwood-prod.civica.granicusops.com/gov/meeting/default.htm

 In addition to our recommendations on warrant articles, this document contains several summaries which highlight the FY18 approved budget, as well as significant information on the Town's finances. Every effort is made to produce this information as user-friendly as possible so that you can make knowledgeable decisions at the Annual Town Meetings.  

We hope the information we post on our website is both interesting and of some help in deciding your votes at Town Meeting.  We welcome your comments and suggestions for enhancing our website.

If anyone has topics they would like explored at any of our meetings, we would consider adding them to our agenda. Please respond to: jodonnell@townhall.westwood.ma.us.
