China selectmen and Budget Committee members will hold a joint virtual meeting beginning at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 7, to discuss changing budget recommendations in the warrant for the annual town business meeting.
According to an email from Town Manager Dennis Heath, he expects at least 8 percent less income for 2020-21 than was anticipated when the proposed budget was approved, and is collecting recommendations for matching budget cuts. Voters will approve the budget at the annual town business meeting.
Selectmen intend to discuss date and format for the meeting at their Monday, May 11, regular meeting, scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Both board meetings will be broadcast live and archived on the Town of China website.
