Two openings on Finance Committee

Reading’s nine-member Finance Committee has two openings. The Finance Committee is responsible for advising Town Meeting on the budget and other fiscal matters that affect the town. Volunteer members of the committee need not be experts in municipal finance or hold an accounting degree. The Finance Committee meets at 7:30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month, except during the budget season — late February through early April — when it meets weekly. Residents interested in serving on the committee are encouraged to fill out a volunteer application, which may be downloaded from the town’s website at, and return it to Paula Schena, office manager at Town Hall, 16 Lowell St., Reading, MA 01867. For more information, contact Finance Committee chairman Barry Berman at or Town Manager Bob LeLacheur at
