Michael Forgione on Spending

An article published in the April 2024 Truro Newsletter shows the rapid growth in both taxes and spending.
"In the four years from FY2021 to FY2025 the Town wants to grow its spending from $23,143,937 to $34,948,179. That is an increase of $11,804,242 or a 51% increase in spending. This is not sustainable."
