COT FY 2023 Budget
FY2023 Operating Budget Presentation

Message from Mayor Shaunna O'Connell:

The City of Taunton Finance Team has enacted several procedural changes designed to implement recommendations from the 2013 DOR/DLS report that will position the City for financial stability and success. One of those recommendations was to formalize the budget process with standard operating procedures and work toward the goal of performance-based budgeting. Under the leadership of our Chief Financial Officer, we have a new budget structure and procedure that will be followed annually as we advance the City towards increased transparency and following DOR best practices.

I am proud of the hard work and accomplishments of our entire City team over the past year. City of Taunton employees are committed to providing the highest quality of services to our residents and I appreciate the dedication they show every day.  

The information in the Budget Presentation includes an in-depth financial analysis and a balanced budget that allows our City to serve our residents by providing all necessary City services while still being thoughtful and careful stewards of our City’s finances and taxpayer dollars. We have taken the first step to a performance-based budget and we look forward to the many ways in which our City will continue to thrive as we implement our goals and visions with clarity, determination and commitment.

Respectfully,

Mayor Shaunna O’Connell
