A new edition of the Association of Town Finance Committees’ Finance Committee Handbook is now available.

Published in October in a PDF format, the handbook includes general updates to all chapters. Its co-editors are Arlington Finance Committee Member Allan Tosti and Mansfield Industrial and Development Commission Member Melinda Tarsi, both of whom are ATFC Governing Board members.

The handbook contains chapters on budgeting, capital planning, borrowing, contracting and procurement, general government and accounting operations, IT, establishing fees, employee benefits (including other post-employment benefits, or OPEB), revenue and expenditure forecasting, banking, and Proposition 2½.

The handbook is a member benefit provided to all finance committee members of dues-paying ATFC communities. These members may receive access to the handbook by emailing Denise Baker at dbaker@mma.org at the MMA.
