Article 4: Plan A to balance the operating budget
The town budget for the current fiscal year which was approved at Town Meeting last spring assumed a transfer of $142,378 from free cash, but that amount was never appropriated. Since Town Meeting, other discrepancies between estimated and actual revenues, and expenses not budgeted have become apparent as well. These changes are summarized in the table to the right. Article 4 would authorize the transfer of $189,043 from free cash and reduce the Minuteman Science-Technology High School assessment by $42,426, to cover the resulting deficit.
The free cash balance is unavailable from officials until it is certified.
