Selectmen are seeking residents to serve on an override study committee that will analyze potential property tax increases for town and school needs, including surging student enrollment.
The committee will evaluate long-range population and financial projections, potential non-tax revenue sources and the impact of a potential Proposition 2 ½ override tax increase on taxpayers.
The committee will also review potential impacts on the town’s bonding capacity, potential savings and efficiencies in town and school operations and will compare the town with other municipalities.
Selectman Dick Benka and School Committee member Susan Wolf Ditkoff will co-chair the committee and are seeking members, including those with expertise in economic modeling, demographics, education administration, financial management or construction and architecture.
Anyone interested in working on the committee can send a resume or contact the selectmen’s office in Town Hall at 333 Washington St., Brookline, MA, 02445 or email the office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
