Important Notice to Westbrook Residents

The Board of Selectmen, after careful review with many individuals, voted NOT TO HAVE A TOWNWIDE REFERENDUM on next year’s municipal budget, including the school’s budget (July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2017).

The rationale for this decision is that in the last 4 years, the number of individuals who voted on the budget has decreased and in 2015, only 245 voters chose to vote on the Budget Referendum.

Accordingly, at the May 11, 2016, 7:00 p.m., Annual Town Meeting, there will be a vote by all present to vote on the budget rather than refer the budget to a Referendum.

A “Citizen’s Guide” to the Budget was mailed to all Westbrook residents and highlights all of the salient features of both the town and the school budgets. This information is presented in very straightforward terms and we encourage you to read this “Guide” and to attend the May 11th budget meeting to either approve or disapprove the 2016/17 budget.

Your municipal government, the Board of Education and all of our respective departments and employees have spent months preparing, deliberating and finalizing a budget for your review. We encourage all of you to be present at the May 11th meeting.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or e-mail me (860-399-3040, nbishop@westbrookct.us).
