October, 2016

The Finance and Warrant Commission (FinCom) has begun preparing for the 2017 Annual Town Meeting which will be held on Monday, May 1, 2017.

The Town of Westwood Finance and Warrant Commission's 2016 Annual Report and Recommendations for Annual Town Meeting is still available on the website and was delivered to residents on or about Monday, April 25, 2016.    

(Please find the 2016 FinCom Annual Report in PDF under Media & Documents.)

In addition to our recommendations on warrant articles, this document contains several summaries which highlight the FY17 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 May Annual Town Meeting.  

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.
