The YourTown Visual Budget Explainer has been created to help citizens and elected officials of YourTown engage in informed discussions about YourTown’s financial management, budgets, challenges, and upcoming decisions. The Explainer provides easy access to the most accurate, timely and relevant information about all budgetary issues.
The Revenues, Expenses and Funds pages are detailed visualizations of the major components of the budget, showing historical information, this year’s budget, and the working forecasts that guide the town’s financial management.
The Glossary page has the accepted definitions of the complex terminology of municipal finance. The Process page describes how YourTown’s budgets are developed and approved. The Documents page is an index of direct links to the primary sources of budget information. The Who Does What page identifies all the decision-making parties in the budget process.
