Waterford selectmen approve Finance Department budget

Waterford — The Board of Selectmen on Tuesday continued its series of departmental budget hearings and forwarded the preliminary budgets of seven departments to the Board of Finance for further review.

The largest budget approved by the board on Tuesday was the Finance Department’s $881,676 budget — an increase of $17,142 or roughly 1.9 percent. The board also approved its own budget of $217,263 — an increase of $1,021, or less than 1 percent.

The next hearing is scheduled for 5 p.m. Thursday at Town Hall.

Four years ago, the Board of Selectmen introduced a policy that all departmental budgets would come to the selectmen before the town budget is submitted to the Board of Finance. The finance board is slated to begin its review in March.
