Budget Committee Update – November 09, 2020

Last night at our first Budget Committee for the 2021 Budget, I notified Council that due to the pandemic, we may be asking those staff who can work from home to continue to do so until at least June. This decision will be made by the end of this week.

In addition, in light of this ongoing disruption and its likely continued impact into 2021, I have spoken to our CAO and asked that staff look at a ways to mitigate the potential for additional financial burden to the Town as a result of COVID-19 in 2021 – including a potential moratorium on some hiring.

With the unique circumstances that this pandemic has created for the Town, we need to turn over all stones so as to ensure that the budget that we pass helps our residents today while not risking the future of our town.
