Ad Hoc Cost Efficiencies Committee
General Responsibilities and Duties
Unlike larger communities, Southampton does not have a Town Planner to analyze its economic situation and develop strategies to ensure financial stability. As with other initiatives, the Select Board decided in 2022 to establish a new ad hoc volunteer committee of qualified citizens and employees to analyze the Town’s infrastructure and service delivery to meet the needs of current and future residents. Specifically, their focus was to examine and recommend measures designed to: maximize the Town’s financial and personnel resources; gain efficiency and/or cost savings in service provision; enhance employment competitiveness; and, achieve and maintain long term fiscal stability. Three categories of focus are:
- What has potential Cost Savings?
- What can help with Cost Control?
- What will improve Efficiency?
