Brewster Select Board & Finance Committee Meet To Review Ways To Strengthen Town's Financial Management Practices

The Brewster Select Board and Finance Committee will host a joint meeting on Thursday June 27 starting at 6pm at Brewster Town Hall to review several reports on the status of the Town’s finances and to discuss financial policy recommendations with state officials.

At the joint meeting, Town officials will hear from the Town’s Auditor, Robert Brown, on the findings of the FY18 annual audit; receive a final report from the Abrahams Group on the corrective measures taken with respect to the Town’s FY18 accounting records; and a report from the Massachusetts Department of Revenue (DOR) on steps the Town can take to further strengthen its financial management practices. Last September, the Brewster Select Board asked the DOR to assist the Town in a review of its overall financial system and to identify policies to consider in line with best practices in municipal finance.
