Officials to give budget updates

Town officials are hoping to provide weekly updates on the town’s $80 million budget deliberations in the weeks leading up to the May 7 Town Meeting. “One of the things we’ve learned over the years is that voters at Town Meeting like to be informed about what is going on,” said selectmen chairman Olivier Kozlowski. He said residents can expect a one-page weekly update on the budget process to be posted on the town’s website (www. mansfieldma.com) near the end of each week. He said that at the moment, town and school officials are not expecting any cuts in personnel, but have been wrestling with increases in special education costs and the possibility of adding a human resources director to serve the school system and the town. Officals also are deliberating on how to close a budget gap that ranges from $300,000 to more than $1 million, depending on such variables as the amount of state aid.
