2016 Pre-Budget Information Workshop

Engaging residents and stakeholders in the decision making process is one of the key strategies in our effort to build the best community possible.  Your Town Council is beginning the process of developing the 2016 budget and we are interested in your opinion on our spending priorities. Please let us know where you believe we need to focus more or less of your tax dollars.

Please join Town of Stratford Council and staff for a pre-budget workshop on November 18 to discuss Town expenses, current requests and to collect new requests and resident feedback. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.
