As the Board of Estimate and Taxation (BET) considers Greenwich’s budget, I’d like to offer some observations.
Next month the Board of Estimate and Taxation will begin budget hearings for the next year, and here’s a snapshot of where the town stands now.
It’s common sense that “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” and the way Greenwich funds its library system definitely “ain’t broke.”
It’s unlikely there are many topics that sound as mind-numbingly dull to people as a long discussion about pension funds. But there are also few areas of state and municipal budgets that are more critical.
