The Wachusett Regional Revenue Sharing Task Force is presenting a primer on the Chapter 70 formula on Thursday, December 13 at 7 pm at the Holden Senior Center. While the focus will be on regional finance, the basics of Chapter 70 remain the same (the divisions amongst the towns is the additional element).
Should you be puzzling over how this works, several members of the Wachusett Regional School Committee have mentioned to me that you'd be most welcome. As the presentation is being done by Worcester Public Schools CFO Brian Allen, your questions on municipal Chapter 70 are still in good hands.
And for those looking for a Worcester finance update: there have been several efforts to schedule a joint Education (City Council) and Finance & Operations (School Committee) meeting. As yet, a date has not been set.
