FinCom shocked by huge budget requests

At its January 17 meeting, the Carlisle Finance Committee (FinCom) heard FY 02 budget proposals from the Gleason Library and the Concord-Carlisle Regional School Committee (RSC). Both groups presented budgets with greater than 20 percent increases over last year and significantly over current FinCom guidelines.

For FinCom members this was the third night of budget requests that far exceeded the guidelines they had established last October. Concerned with potentially enormous deficits, members grilled the presenters about every large line item, not hesitating to throw punches at some "sacred cows".
