How much reserve funds does the Town have?

Using preliminary 2021 year-end numbers, the Town estimates it will end 2020 with $38.4 million available in the General Fund. Of this total, approximately $26.3 million is unobligated or not already designated for a particular use. The Town believes this reserve amount reflects sound cash management in the event of an economic downturn, given the Town’s annual General Fund expenditures exceed $55 million.
