Kent officials are asking for residents to weigh in on the modified budget process through an online survey. The Board of Finance has been authorized to adopt a budget within the scope of Governor Lamont's Executive Order, put in place because of the COVID19 pandemic and the reduction in gathering size.
Kent residents will be able to submit comments and ask up to 5 questions of the Boards of Education, Finance and Selectmen about the proposed budget using SurveyMonkey. The comment period is open until the end of day on May 6th.
All of the submissions will be sent to each board for their response, which will then be read in for discussion at the Board of Finance's May 19th meeting, where the public will be also allowed to ask questions. The Board of Finance will then adjourn to a special meeting to approve the budget and set the mill rate.
