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 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, 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.
