Finance Committee


Responsibilities
WE WATCH OUT FOR YOUR MONEY

Finance Committees are established in accordance with Chapter 39, Section 16 of the Massachusetts General Laws. It reads as follows:
“Every town whose valuation for the purpose of apportioning the state tax exceeds one million dollars shall, and any other town may, by by-law provide for the election or the appointment and duties of appropriation, advisory or finance committees, who shall consider any or all municipal questions for the purpose of making reports or recommendations to the town; and such by-laws may provide that committees so appointed or elected may continue in office for terms not exceeding three years from the date of appointment or election.
In every town having a committee appointed under authority of this section, such committee, or the selectmen if authorized by a by-law of the town, and, in any town not having such a committee, the selectmen, shall submit a budget at the annual town meeting.”

The Town of Heath has a Finance Committee (FinCom) composed of five elected members. It works cooperatively with the Board of Selectmen in preparing the budget.
In addition it makes recommendations with regard to warrant articles, conducts special studies, investigates town expenditures and, in general, performs an oversight function of the Town’s financial decisions. The role of the FinCom is advisory but its opinions usually carry significant weight at Town Meetings.
