Lyme Board of Finance Hosts Virtual Public Hearing on Proposed 2020-21 Town Budget Tonight; Call for Access Info to Meeting by 4pm

Lyme Board of Finance Chairman Dan Hagan.

LYME  — The Lyme Board of Finance will host a Public Hearing on their proposed 2020-21 budget Tuesday, April 28, at 6:30 p.m. View the agenda at this link.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the hearing will take place virtually since the Governor’s Executive Order 7B temporarily suspends the In-Person requirement for municipal public meetings.

To obtain access to the Lyme Public Hearing, contact Jennifer Thomas at jen@townlyme.org no later than 4 p.m. on the day of the meeting.

To further enhance public input, the Lyme Board of Finance has established an email address at lymebudgetcomments@gmail.com, so you can send in questions or comments about the proposed budget in advance of the virtual Budget Hearing.  This mailbox is open and will be monitored through April 28.  All e-mails received will be addressed as part of the virtual Budget Hearing on April 28.

The budget will be approved at a regular board of finance meeting scheduled for May 12.  The board of finance has been authorized to approve the budget without a town meeting this year. This is also a result of the Governor’s Executive Order 7B.
