Town Budget
The Budget sets forth a strategic resource allocation plan that is distinctly aligned with community goals, preferences, and needs. The Budget is a policy document, financial plan, operations guide, and communication device all in one. The annual budget process refers to the proposed plan of expenditures and revenues for a given fiscal year starting each July 1st and ending the following June 30th for the Town’s main operating fund which is also known as the General Fund. The General Fund budget process requires the involvement of many stakeholders to develop a responsible budget that provides essential services without imposing excessive costs. The Board of Selectmen, Board of Education, Stafford Public Library and Debt Service comprise the Town of Stafford General Government budget. The Water Pollution Control Facility and Service District Commission are separate user taxing districts. Simply put, the town’s operating budget is its annual fiscal plan and road map. It is an itemization of the revenues and expenditures that are expected during the regular course of business during the fiscal year, which runs from July 1 to June 30. Items like salaries, benefits, utilities, supplies, and debt payments are included in the budget.
