Summer Youth Work Force

The Town of Washington has established a new Summer Youth Work Force for local High School students ages 16 – 18. Students will work in the Town’s parks, the Town Hall grounds, the Judea Garden and with the Tree Warden. The paying job will include, among other duties, clearing invasive plants, landscaping, growing vegetables and conducting a public tree inventory. Through their work, the students will be exposed to environmental science, horticulture, arboriculture and ecology. The Summer Youth Work Force will be funded through private donations made by local civic groups, businesses and residents.

The goal of the program is to have two to three students working thirty hours per week for six weeks. Those numbers will depend on the amount of money raised. If you can help us tire out some teenagers this summer with a donation, please contact Denise Arturi at 860 868-2880 or denise.arturi@charter.net

Town of Washington
Notice of Annual Budget Hearing

The voters and electors of the Town of Washington are hereby warned that the Annual Town Budget Hearing will be held on Thursday, May 5th, 2011 at 7:30 p.m. at Bryan Memorial Town Hall, Washington Depot, CT to consider the General Fund and Capital Fund expenditures for the 2011-2012 fiscal year.

At this hearing interested persons will be heard and written communication will be received and read aloud.

Dated at Washington, Connecticut, this 20th day of April, 2011.

Michael C. Jackson
Chairman
Board of Finance


Copies of the Capital Proposal 2011-2011 and the Proposed General Fund 2011-2012
are available here in .pdf format


Letter from the Selectmen

The Selectmen have worked diligently to present a responsible General Fund and Capital Fund budget for FY11-12, while still maintaining the reliable and anticipated services that are important to our townspeople. The General Fund expenses have been maintained at a 1.0% increase, with an overall 1.1% increase for funding for General, Capital, Open Space, Housing and Legal Litigation Funds.
Factors in the 1.0% increase in General Fund Budget:

This year we are proposing a 1% increase for full-time employees and a 2% increase for part-time employees.

Fulltime employees will continue to receive Health Insurance at no cost to them. We have adjusted the health insurance coverage by raising the deductible, which will continue to be covered by the Town. We are covering the small medical premium increase, as well as the increased deductible, with minimal budget impact. We have increased the funding of the Health Reimbursement Fund above anticipated annual expense to account for increased exposure and to continue building the Health Insurance Fund reserve.

We have adjusted anticipated fuel costs upward for both heating oil and vehicle fuel.

We have increased the Town’s donation to the Gunn Library and Museum by $12,000 (2/3 of their request).

Firehouse Debt Service has decreased 4.1% offsetting some Operating Budget increases.

The biggest change we have made and one, which we feel would be most prudent, is to reduce the transfer of funds for Open Space from $75,000 to $25,000. These funds would instead be used to offset above mentioned increases in the General Fund Budget and be applied to the Capital Fund towards the potential purchase of property for stockpiling\storage of road materials. This future purchase would allow the Town to remove the last of these materials from the Titus Road property in keeping with our Plan of Development.

We have included the purchase of Highway Equipment in the Nonrecurring Capital Budget to increase our efficiency and make better use of our Road Program Capital Budget maintaining Town infrastructure.
