Discussion of the FY14 Capital Budgeting Process
Mr. Guzinski updated the committee on the town’s financial situation. He stated that the town is currently looking at FY14 and they are projecting to be significantly in the red for next year. The Strategic Budget Committee is looking at options to address that problem. They are looking at the possibility of passing an override, part of which would address capital needs. At this time, he is not able to say what funds would be available. Free Cash would not be available for Capital.
Mr. Guzinski stated that he could send out the forms for the budgeting process to the town departments in the next week.
