The Halifax Board of Selectmen seeks Halifax residents interested in serving on the Halifax Finance Committee.
The Committee’s primary role is to recommend an annual Town budget covering all town and school departments to be presented at the annual town meeting in May. This recommended budget is based on the revenues available to the Town along with the needs of residents and businesses for Town services.
In addition, the Finance Committee makes recommendations on all other matters to be voted on at town meetings including the capital budget and proposed by-laws. The Finance Committee generally meets twice a month from June to December on Monday nights except for August (usually no meetings) and then every Monday (except for holidays) from January to May.
Residents interested in serving on the Finance Committee should complete a Talent Bank form available at http://www.halifax-ma.org/town-clerk/files/board-committee-volunteer-form and send it to the Halifax Board of Selectmen, 499 Plymouth Street, Halifax, MA 02338 or call the Selectmen’s Office at 781-294-1316 for a copy of the form.
Currently, there are three vacancies on the seven-person Committee and members are needed to review budgets and to
ensure that there are a sufficient number of members attending each meeting in order to have a quorum.
More information is available through the Selectmen›s Office.
