Initial views of the Town of Lunenburg budget…and 5 year forecast


 

I had a dream the other night.  I attended the Lunenburg meeting to listen to the 5 year forecast.  It was one of the better meetings I had attended in quite a while.  During the meeting, our delivered the 5 year forecast which showed a surplus for every year over the next 5 years.   The audience erupted in applause and thanked the town manager for the excellent news….As I woke up in a cold sweat, I realized that this had just been a dream.

 

We unfortunately find ourselves in a situation where we are in a likely budget shortfall.  How is this going to impact the Lunenburg Public Schools?  Notice…I did not ask IF !  This is definitely going to impact our budget.

 

Ok now parents!  LISTEN UP!  I AM GOING TO NEED YOU TO GET VOCAL ABOUT THE USAGE OF THE TOWN BUDGET!  THIS IS PUBLIC INFORMATION PLEASE READ AND BE READY TO SHARE YOUR CONCERNS, COMMENTS OR SUGGESTIONS WITH THE BOARD OF SELECTMEN.  PLEASE MAKE AN ATTEMPT TO ATTEND A BoS MEETING TO SHARE YOUR OPINION.
