Committee Created To Make Budgetary Process More Transparent

Quispamsis council forming a committee to explore how to make the inner workings of their budgetary process more accessible to the public. 

Mayor Murray Driscoll chairs the new committee and he tells CHSJ News when council released its most recent budget, some media outlets suggested council was not being as transparent as possible. Driscoll says after review, they believe it's now time for them to move on to a more open process.

The committee will bring back recommendations to the town for guidelines as to how they can move forward and get input from the community before the budget actually goes to final council. The committee has already met once, although no decisions have been made at this point in time. 

This year's budget being approved in early January.
