The Village of Westport Council had an initial review of the 2016 Budget on November 23 at a Special Committee of the Whole Meeting. A Public Meeting to discuss the budget was also held on November 23rd. No member of the public attended the public meeting, although there were several community members at the Committee of the Whole.
On Monday, December 14 at 2:00 p.m., Council will be reviewing the preliminary draft budget at a Special Committee of the Whole Meeting. Another opportunity for public input will occur at a Public Meeting from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. on December 14th. Copies of the preliminary draft budget will be available by 2:00 p.m. December 11th at Town Hall or on-line.
Obviously, no decisions have been made on the 2016 budget. The process of establishing a municipal budget is slow and methodical. For you to have a full understanding of what is being discussed, you are invited to listen to all Council discussions and debates during the Special or Regular meetings. Dates and times of meetings are on the Village web site.
