'Extremely tight' budget seen in Wrentham

Posted by Martin Finucane March 2, 2007 10:51 AM


Interim Town Administrator Jack McFeeley said he hopes to present the selectmen's budget for the new fiscal year to the Finance Committee by the end of this month.

McFeeley said money would be "extremely tight," but he didn't know whether the budget for the year starting July 1 would require personnel cuts.

The elementary school system has requested a 9.7 percent funding increase to maintain current services, and the regional King Philip system has asked for a 13 percent increase in Wrentham's contribution. McFeeley said he doubts the town can afford the increases.
