Ashland NH Budget Committee

Meetings Members Minutes

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 onthe warrant articles to the voters, who have the finalsay on the budget and warrant articles.
