The Sudbury Finance Committee (“FinCom”) consists of nine dedicated and hardworking individuals appointed by the Moderator to serve three-year terms. A vacancy has occurred for a members’ term expiring 5/31/21, and it is the responsibility of the Finance Committee to fill this vacancy.
The FinCom’s primary responsibility is to make recommendations to Town Meeting on all of Sudbury’s financial matters. The Committee regularly interacts with Town and school officials and various other committees on fiscal items, and holds public budget hearings in January and February of each year. At Town Meeting, the FinCom is required by law to present voters with a balanced non-override budget (one that does not exceed the levels of Proposition 2 1/2) and to make recommendations on all financial articles. If, in any year, the Select Board authorizes an override budget, the Committee will make a recommendation on that proposed budget. FinCom meetings are public and are usually held on the second and fourth Monday of the month. All meetings are currently being held virtually via Zoom and begin at 7:00 p.m. unless otherwise posted.

All residents who are interested in serving on the FinCom should submit an Appointment Application Form to [email protected]. Applications are due by 5PM on Wednesday, January 27, 2021.
