The primary duties of a municipal Finance Committee in Massachusetts are to advise and make recommendations to town meeting on the budget and other areas of municipal finance. It has statutory authority to make transfers from the town’s Reserve Fund to departmental budgets for extraordinary or unforeseen occurrences. It may approve with the Select Board some budget transfers during the last two months of fiscal year the first 15 days of the next year to close out the town’s financial records.
