The Capital Budget Committee’s function is to review, vet and recommend to the Board of Selectmen, Warrant Committee, and town voters the annual capital budget, which includes Article 5 and other special articles that involve capital expenditures on the annual Town Warrant.
The Committee publishes their recommendation in the "Blue Book" produced by the Warrant Committee prior to Town Meeting. The Committee also prepares a 5-year outlook of potential capital expenditures.
