Bellingham budget to be scrutinized

Posted by Martin Finucane March 9, 2007 10:25 AM


The Finance Committee has scheduled meetings for the next several weeks on town department budgets and spring Town Meeting warrant articles.

The meetings start Monday with the town clerk, treasurer/collector, and assessor budgets. All meetings are at 7:15 p.m. Mondays. The agenda for the March 19 meeting includes discussion of a proposal to sell town land on Judy Lane. The town's inspectional services budget will also be scrutinized.

Town Administrator Denis Fraine told the committee at a recent meeting that he considered eliminating one inspector position but need for inspections has picked up and the inspectors' salaries are generally justified by the fees collected.
