Recently, this question/comment was made to a Parish Council member. ‘Why all this talk about money? In the bulletin every week I see all the thousands we take in and no expenses. We must be a very wealthy parish.’
Paul Stevens, Parish Council Chair, answers. Great question. Since your question was brought to our attention, the council has had a number of discussions about how to present a better snapshot of the ongoing parish financial situation. PC member Emelie Klein recently presented a sample from another parish that, at first glance, seemed to fit what we are looking for.
Now that the budget is compete, the finance committee will review this at the May 6th meeting, which I plan to attend. Hopefully, you will see something in the bulletin shortly.
