Openings on new override committee

Advertisement

Selectmen are seeking residents to serve on a new committee that will study funding options to accommodate the school district’s projected growth. Town officials are discussing the need for tax increases through one or more Proposition 2½ overrides to pay for school expansion or construction projects, as well as the district’s additional staffing requirements. Selectman Richard Benka will chair the new committee, which could make its first recommendations by next March . The town is seeking candidates who have an understanding of budget standards, financial principles or business practices in private, public, or nonprofit organizations, although specific backgrounds are not required for the volunteer positions. Resumes and letters of interest should be sent as soon as possible to the Board of Selectmen’s office at Town Hall, 333 Washington St., Brookline, MA 02445. Materials can also be e-mailed to pparks@brooklinema.gov .
