Community Appropriations Application Organizations requesting to appear on the ballot
- Community Appropriation Application
- Send to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Deadline: 1 December 2017
In order to request funding for your service organization, please submit the "Community Appropriation Application" form above to email@example.com with subject line "Community Appropriation" and your organization name. Deadline for requesting an appropriation for next fiscal year is 1 December 2017.
You may request an appearance before the Selectboard to discuss your appropriation request. This should be scheduled with the Town Administrator (David Kiernan, firstname.lastname@example.org, (802) 442 4038) during budget season in November or December. The Selectboard has discretion to approve, deny or modify your request to appear on the ballot.
Alternatively, you can get your appropriation request on the ballot by submitting a petition signed by 5% of voters (about 150). Such petitions must be submitted to the Town Clerk before 24 January 2018. Such petitions may be submitted instead of applying to the Selectboard, or subsequent to a denial or modification by the Selectboard.
Be aware that it is the voters of Shaftsbury who ultimately decided whether an appropriation is made when they vote by Australian ballot on election day, 6 March 2018.
If you have questions, please contact the Town Administrator David Kiernan at (802) 442 4038.
