The Board of Finance is responsible for the town's finances.  Members' primary duties are to review and approve the town budgets and set the property tax rate.  To accomplish these tasks, the Board estimates revenues and monitors both income and spending throughout the fiscal year.

The Board also reviews each request for additional spending, and any second line item request must go to a Town Meeting vote before it can be approved.  The Board of Finance also reviews and approves appropriations and transfers among town accounts, determines how the town's financial records are kept and reported, arranges for the annual financial audit, and publishes the annual town report.
