HARVARD — Have you wondered how Harvard’s selectmen work with the Finance Committee, the School Committee and the other boards and committees that comprise your town meeting-based government? Have you wondered how the town administrator and finance administrator fit into the equation? Do you know where the town gets funds? How the funds get spent?
Come to the meeting on Thursday, April 2 at 7 p.m., at the Harvard Public Library Volunteers Hall for some answers.
The program will open with a presentation by Colleen Corona, chairman of the Easton Board of Selectmen. Corona’s presentation will focus on the major roles in town meeting government, will provide insights into the complicated processes going on at Town Hall, and will help you understand the basics of municipal finances.
Corona is also on the Board of the Mass Municipal Association, the Local Government Advisory Council, the Mass. Selectmen Association, and also teaches classes in local government at Massasoit Community College.
Following her presentation, representatives of major town boards and the town moderator have been invited to speak briefly and be available to answer questions from the audience.
This meeting is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Harvard. Refreshments will be served.
Future programs in the series include “What it would take to get a beer and a burger in Harvard,” on April 9, and a Candidates’ Debate on April 14.
