In Holliston, asking for more than expected

HOLLISTON

The Police Department and Council on Aging both presented budget increases to selectmen this week that came in above the board’s guidelines.

Police Chief Thomas Lambert presented a $2.1 million budget, a
4.9 percent increase from last year. Senior Center Director Lina Arena-DeRosa asked for a $153,925 budget, a 7.9 percent increase. Selectmen had asked department heads to create budgets that called for a 3 percent increase in salaries and a 1 percent increase in other expenses.

Still, Town Administrator Paul LeBeau said, selectmen will likely move the budgets forward to the Finance Committee.
