FY 2012 Budget

Welcome to the online homepage of the FY 2012 Town of Natick Budget. The budget process is one of the most important tasks that Natick faces annually. Prioritizing what is distributed where affects everyone within the community, and it is important that everyone feels enfranchised in an open and collaborative process. This resource is designed to help citizens learn more about the basics of budgeting in Natick and to inform citizens about how they can be involved in the process.

Budget Process
The budget process began internally in fall 2010 with the development of departmental budgets on both the municipal and school sides of the government. The Town Administrator, as required by the Town's Charter and bylaws, submitted her Preliminary Budget to the Board of Selectmen and the Finance Committee. The budget was reviewed by those committee and forwarded to Town Meeting in early April 2011. The FY 2012 Appropriated Budget was approved by Town Meeting.

Full copies of the Preliminary Budget are available at the reference desks of the Morse Institute Library, 14 East Central Street; the Bacon Free Library, 56 Eliot Street; and the Offices of the Town Clerk and the Board of Selectmen, 13 East Central Street.
