Hi Sally,


Thanks for asking that question!  Waitsfield is in the process of making the same transition.  I am preparing a 12 month and a 6 month budget for now.  I am inclined to think they should be voted on separately at Town Meeting, but that hasn’t been decided yet.   We’ll be interested in responses to the tax adjustments question.

Subject: Tax adjustments & fiscal year change


We are changing fiscal years from calendar to Jul-Jun and are deciding whether to do a 6 or 18 month budget. Can anyone explain to me how state tax adjustments may be affected in either case? We want to do what's in everyone's best interest, of course! Thanks,
