DIGHTON — The Dighton Board of Selectmen, together with Town Administrator Michael Mullen, Jr., is pleased to report that the Town of Dighton has requested a Financial Management Review to be conducted by the State’s Division of Local Services.
A Financial Management Review focused on best practices aims to help improve Dighton’s financial future by focusing on strengthening the town’s Financial Team model, financial forecasting, capital planning opportunities and other practices recommended by the Division of Local Services (DLS).
As part of the Town of Dighton’s Financial Management Review request, a team from the Commonwealth’s Technical Assistance Bureau (TAB) has been asked to conduct the review in consultation with staff from the Division’s Bureau of Local Assessment (BLA) and Bureau of Accounts (BOA).
The review will include interviews with members of the Dighton Board of Selectmen, the Finance Committee, the Capital Outlay Committee, as well as the town administrator, town accountant, treasurer/collector, assessor, and other town officials. DLS members would also examine Dighton’s various financial documents including annual budget documents, revenue and expenditure reports, and more.
“Dighton has a strong reputation of diligent financial planning,” said Town Administrator Mullen. “The undertaking of a Financial Management Review that focuses on best practices offers an even greater promise to our community as Dighton continues to plan towards its financial future.”
Additional information regarding the ongoing Financial Management Review process will be shared as updates become available.
