Budget Committee

The budget committee operates under the authority granted by RSA 32, the Municipal Budget Act. The primary responsibility of a municipal budget committee is to assist its voters in the prudent appropriation of public funds. To do so, the committee reviews budgets prepared by both the town's governing bodies (Board of Selectmen and School Board).


The committee meets four times to gather input from the public on the budget and regularly reviews comparative statements of all appropriations and all expenditures throughout the fiscal year.


The budget committee consists of six elected members-at-large. The current elected members of the committee are:

  • Bill Haynes, Chair
  • David Allen
  • Alan Glassman
  • Bruce Grey
  • Scott Littlefield
  • Wayne Whitney

The budget committee also has one representative appointed by each of the two governing bodies.

  • Rick Duane, Selectmen's Representative

Questions or information concerning the Budget Committee can be answered by the Chairman at 776-6071 or by e-mail at
