FY11 Budget Message and School Committee Meeting tonight

Last week at their October 27 Meeting, the Hopkinton Board of Selectmen announced the following Budget Message for FY11:

  1. Reduce the FY11 budget by 2.65% from the FY10 budget.
  2. Build medium and long term sustainability of the town’s finances by addressing minimum recommended reserves as well [as] instituting pay-as-you-go capital as part of the town’s debt service plan.
  3. Maintain the town’s current level of services even with a 2.65% reduction in budget.
  4. Continue the coordinated effort by all town departments, boards and committees, to identify more efficient operations, revenue enhancement opportunities and additional cost cutting measures.
