The recently-created Sustainable Budget Task Force is charged with the challenging task of developing a five-year "sustainable forecast" that will allow the town to provide services that meet residents’ expectations as well as ongoing expenditure obligations that are in line with projected revenue.
The well-rounded task force is comprised of Interim Supt. of Schools Gary Maestas, one member each from the school committee and select board, a Hingham Public Schools administrator, the assistant town administrator for finance, and a former advisory committee chair.
The goal is for the task force to report its findings to Town Administrator Tom Mayo in Jan. 2022, when budget discussions for the next fiscal year will be underway.
