The Budget: What To Do?



The poll results are in and Bridgewater residents have spoken about what their hopes are for the budget at the Special Town Meeting to be held next Monday night. It will be certainly interesting to see how many people will come out for the Special Town Meeting and whether or not the actual outcome will match the poll results on Around the Common.


39% think that the budget should be reduced by $200k (snow & ice money from the State that has not arrived)

34% think that the budget should be reduced by $508k as requested by the Selectmen.

19% think that the budget should be reduced by $800k ($200k snow & ice and $600k for the one time 40R money)

5% think that there should be no reduction and that we should wait and see about free cash and/or other revenue.
