Cost of Public Events in Branford

I am a representative on the Town Meeting for the fifth district of Branford.

There is a yearly discussion at budget time where the costs of Public Events comes up. I would like your opinion on the subject as we head into the budget negotiations.

These events include:
      Branford Festival
      Branford Road Race
      Fire works
       Veterans,Memorial Day and Holiday Parades

Currently the current cost of events are budgeted at approximately $121,000 or one tenth of one percent of the total town budget. 

I would like to gather your opinions on the subject. This compilation of thoughts, suggestions and concerns will allow us to better understand citizens views.

I will present findings to the RTM during the budget talks.
Please take the time to fill out survey.
Please keep all comments civil. All comments deemed inappropriate will be taken down from site.

    2 years ago Do you feel Branford taxpayers should pay for Public Events?: Yes, events are part of the "fabric" that makes up our town
    Comments: Branford festival, road race, and fireworks are as important to townspeople as our libraries, beaches parks etc. These are benefits that town should provide through our property taxes.
