Welcome to the Online Home page of the FY 2011 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.
The budget process began in fall internally with the development of departmental budgets on both the municipal and school sides of the Town. Going forward, the Board of Selectmen, the School Committee and the Finance Committee will work diligently with Town staff over the next several months in preparing a balanced budget for submission to Town Meeting. This is designed to be an open and collaborative process with ample opportunity for public input during the various public hearings of the three major boards involved.
