New report enhances financial transparency

The reports also detail the Town’s $62 million increase in net worth in 2016 and provide information regarding the Town’s capital assets, debt and investments.

Additionally, the smaller report contains some 2016 performance information, as previously shared with the community in the Town’s Report to the Community – Year-end 2016, available at
