Committee on Appropriations

 The Barrington Committee on Appropriations is responsible to present the budget to the townspeople at the Financial Town Meeting. The Committee reviews the budgets presented by the Town Council and School Committee. It meets with the Town Manager and the Superintendent of Schools to examine their budgets in detail. There is a hearing, two weeks prior to the Financial Town Meeting, where the Appropriations Committee presents their preliminary budget proposal to the public for comment. As with all government meetings, these are open to the public for observation. Detailed information about this committee can be found in the Town Charter, sections 6-4-5, 6-4-6 and 7-2.
