Citizens of Marlborough,

On April 26, 2020 my office proposed a budget to the Board of Finance (BOF) that reflected a mill rate decrease of (0.63) and fully funded the road repair investments suggested by our consultant, the library grant, the AHM budget and firefighter recognition. At the April 29, 2020 BOF meeting, the BOF decided to cut the town operations budget proposal by $70,730 and the local Board of Education budget (BOE) by $100,128. These demands were a surprise to many as the BOE and the Board of Selectmen (BOS) had made cuts from the original departmental requests at the suggestion of the BOF. At the May 5, 2020 BOS meeting, the BOS unanimously agreed to sacrifice road materials, payroll, library grant, AHM grant and firefighter recognition in an effort to meet the demand of the BOF. The capital spending plan is unchanged at this time. Please note that the BOS unanimously agreed that we would prefer, if cuts are necessary for FY21, that they be made from additions to capital reserves and not from operations. The BOF was made aware of the BOS preference to make cuts, if any, from town additions to capital reserves rather than town operations. The summary of cuts to operations as well as the operations (revised) and capital spending (unchanged) plans are available here.
