Hampstead Budget Committee to Work on Improving Transparency

HAMPSTEAD – The Budget Committee plans to develop ways for improving the transparency and clarity of budget and financial information presented in the Town Report.

Member Anne Howe said at last week’s meeting that she reviewed several years of Town Reports and found a lack of consistency and clarity in the way budget and financial information is presented, making it hard both to understand and to compare. She was asked by the board to develop suggestions for improving the presentation of budget and financial information for the Town Report and agreed to bring them to the Sept. 5 meeting of the Budget Committee.

The committee member liaisons will spend September meeting with their boards and committees as the budget season gets underway, and should get information on any big ticket projects being contemplated.
