Selectmen seek override committee members and expertise

Advertisement

Selectmen are seeking residents to serve on a Proposition 2½ override study committee that will analyze potential property tax increases for town and school needs, including surging student enrollment. The committee will evaluate long-range population and financial projections, potential nontax revenue sources and the impact of a potential override of the tax-limiting measure Proposition 2½ on taxpayers. The committee will also review potential impacts on the town’s bonding capacity, potential savings and efficiencies in town and school operations, and will compare the town with other municipalities. Selectman Dick Benka and School Committee member Susan Wolf Ditkoff will cochair the committee and are seeking members who have expertise in economic modeling, demographics, education administration, financial management, or construction and architecture. Anyone interested in working on the committee can send a resume to the Selectmen’s Office in Town Hall at 333 Washington St., Brookline, MA, 02445 or e-mail the office at pparks@brooklinema.gov.
