  • 30. Town Council FY2011 Budget Policy Guidelines (adopted December 15, 2009) Six of the top priorities are as follows: • Complete an energy use baseline inventory for municipal buildings, vehicles, street and traffic lighting and create a plan to reduce energy use by 20% in 5 years. • Repair and improve the Town’s streets and sidewalks and enhance its trees and planting strips. Consideration should be given to funding such repairs, improvements and enhancements from a variety of sources, including tax revenues, debt and a betterment program. Strengthen capacity (including staffing) to carry out routine maintenance of street trees and other trees on public land and, through the joint efforts of the Tree Warden and Department of Public Works, develop a comprehensive Tree Program. • Public Safety: Police, Fire and dispatch together represents the Town’s biggest expenditure (after education). Examine how to best deliver the level of service citizens want, more efficiently. • Strengthen the Town’s capacity to address facilities management, through regular staffing or contract services. The Council and Town Manager will continue discussions on reorganizing the Public Works Department to include a facilities manager/engineer. • Institute a formal Economic Development Program for the newly rezoned Pleasant Street Corridor District, with a long-term goal to increase town revenue. The Program should include a marketing plan to prospective developers as well as the use of state and federal grants and redevelopment programs. • Support the possibilities of providing more services on a regional basis in accordance with the Town Council Resolution. 30Tuesday, March 29, 2011
