Town cuts on table

Kristine Trierweiler has proposed the following budget cuts that were recommended by her department heads, in an attempt to get to a balanced (no override) town budget.  On this iteration of the proposed cuts, those related to

  • the elimination of the Saturday hours at the Council on Aging,
  • elimination of the evening hours at the Town House, and
  • Sunday closing of the Medfield Memorial Library.

were stricken and eliminated from the proposal, as not being worth doing for the savings effected.
