Finance Committee

Started in 2017, the Finance Committee, meets each week to review the functions in the borough that cost taxpayers money in order to determine ways to improve efficiencies, save money, and better plan how our borough operates. The idea is to meet with various department heads to discuss operations, make recommendations, and connect efforts between departments that are logical and common sense. By reviewing each of these siloed operations and working to coordinate their efforts, the mission is to make borough functions more robust and smart.

The 2018 Finance Committee is comprised of:
Council President Shawn Haussermann, Chair
Councilwoman Julie Meira
Councilwoman Sandra Adelino

Some of the efforts that have already come out of the Finance Committee are:

  • The variety of GovPilot efforts
  • Developing and transitioning to a smart water meter installation program
  • Building out a communications plan for the borough
  • Assessing current space utilization of various departments
  • Putting together a full-day summer recreation program
  • Finding savings through shared service agreements
  • Reviewing outdated technology contracts to obtain savings to taxpayers
  • Planning downtown revitalization efforts
  • Implementing a credit card processing system
  • Installation of a time clock to streamline payroll and other efficiencies
