Budget Committee

The Ashland Budget Committee was established by a vote of the Town Meeting in March 1936. The principal duty of the Committee, according to RSA Chapter 32, is to review the proposed budgets and the warrant articles requesting appropriations for the Town of Ashland and its utilities, and the Ashland School District. The process includes a public hearing on the Committee’s initial decisions. The Committee then recommends its own version of the annual budget and expresses its opinions on the warrant articles to the voters, who have the final say on the budget and warrant articles.

BUDGET COMMITTEE MEETINGS

The Committee meets as needed throughout the year. Find the dates of upcoming meetings on the calendar under “Town Government Meetings.”
