The Finance Committee is the official fiscal watchdog for the Town of Southwick. Because it is difficult for all taxpayers to be completely informed about every aspect of the Town's finances, the Finance Committee was established by by-law to advise and make recommendations to Town Meeting on the budget and other areas of finance. In addition to their research and advisory role at Town Meeting, the Finance Committee plays a vital role in the financial planning of the Town. Finance Committee members are a representative group of taxpayers that conduct a thorough review of municipal finance questions on behalf of all Southwick citizens. Their statutory authority is limited to making transfers from the Town's reserve fund to other line items in the budget for extraordinary or unforeseen occurrences. Finance Committee members are appointed by the Town Moderator for three-year terms. Current members can be contacted through the Selectmen's Office at 569-5995.
