Town Manager Norman Khumalo and Senior Accounting Manager Benjamin Sweeney are inviting residents to complete a survey as the town prepares to begin the fiscal year 2024 budget process.
The town will use the survey results to garner the community’s understanding of the town’s budget and how the process can be improved.
The survey includes 14 questions and asks the respondent about their current understanding of the budget and how they learn about it currently, the importance of various budget categories, how they believe the process could be improved, some demographic questions and more. It will take approximately 5 minutes to complete.
“We encourage residents to complete this survey ahead of our yearly budget process,” Sweeney said. “The annual budget impacts the level and type of services residents receive, as well as the direction of our town, and the survey will help us learn about residents’ understanding of the budget and continue to engage the community in the process.”
The survey is available in multiple languages. Paper copies are available at Hopkinton Town Hall, 18 Main Street; Hopkinton Public Library, 13 Main Street; and the Senior Center, 28 Mayhew Street.
The survey will remain open until Thursday, Oct. 6.
