In her state of the town address, Walter pointed out that the town is in a strong fiscal position.
“At the close of last fiscal year, 2019-2020, the town’s governmental funds reported combined for fund balances of $48.6 million, which was an increase of $6 million over the previous year,” she said. “Our unassigned fund balance, which is available for spending at the town’s discretion, was $13.4 million. This represents nearly 78.4% of our general fund budget for fiscal year 2020-21 and is a tremendous asset for the town moving forward.”
