Due to Covid-19, it is paramount to monitor the budget so the residents do not have have the burden left on them. This can be accomplished by limiting large expenditures, delay capital projects and seek department cuts where possible that does not greatly impact operations. Thinking outside of the box has never had more meaning then a time like now.
The financial impact that Covid-19 has created. Tax collection is down due to the impact the virus. Our residents have felt the impact as well. It is our obligation to help maintain services for our residents without creating a tax burden for them. Finding ways to be fiscally responsible is critical.
Barrington has already engaged in many share service agreements which has had a positive impact for the community. I am for exploring new shared services opportunities. Anyway we can help our residents is worth exploring.
The last 10 years plus, Barrington has been aggressive in economic development and has been very successful in its efforts. Continued economic development opportunities are very important to me and for the Borough of Barrington. By bringing in businesses that development or redevelopment existing building creates more people traffic who not only go to the new businesses, but visit other existing businesses in town helping the local economy.
