Finance Committee Vacancy

by Paul LeBeau
9/11/2013

Residents who are interested in municipal finance and would like to serve the Town as a member of the Committee are encouraged to apply.  Financial experience is helpful but is not required.  Any appointment to the open position is for a term that expires on May 20, 2014. 

Applicants must meet the following criteria:

  1. Applicants must reside and must be registered to vote in Holliston. 
  2. Applicants must not be employees of the Town (part-time or per diem work is considered employment for the purposes of this requirement); call firefighters are excluded from this requirement.
  3. Applicants must not be currently serving on any other Town board or committee, unless the position will be relinquished if appointed to the Finance Committee.  (This only applies to town boards or committees; serving private organizations like PTSA, etc., is permitted.) 

The Finance Committee is a seven member volunteer board that serves a statutory role of “advise and consent” on municipal financial issues.  The major function of the Finance Committee is the development of the Town’s operating budget each fiscal year; the Committee’s recommendations are presented for approval each May at Town Meeting.  The Committee also makes recommendations on any warrant articles that have a financial component.  The Committee meets on Tuesday nights throughout most of the year, with the most significant time commitment during the budget season from January through May Town Meeting each year.

Interested parties should send a letter of interest along with a resume to the Finance Committee, Town Hall, 703 Washington Street, Holliston, MA 01746.  Applications can also be e-mailed to Paul LeBeau, Town Administrator (lebeaup@holliston.k12.ma.us).   All applications must be received at Town Hall no later than Thursday, October 31, 2013.   Any questions can be e-mailed to Ken Szajda (chairman) at ken.szajda@hollistonfincom.com.
