Finance Committee needs new members

The Merrimac Finance Committee is currently seeking new members. Members interested in serving should contact Carol McLeod, the Merrimac finance director, at 978-346-0524. The Finance Committee is appointed by the moderator and is comprised of town residents, not town employees, and is responsible for conducting an independent review of budget proposals and reporting to Town Meeting.

The mission of the Finance Department is to support the town and its departments by providing high quality financial, accounting and administrative services, so that they can perform their missions more efficiently, effectively and innovatively, both now and in the future.

The Merrimac Lions Club has announced that the Lions Club Community Service Sign Board, in front of the Merrimac police-fire station, is available to Merrimac nonprofit organizations to highlight public service events. A minimum two weeks’ notice is required. For details, write to Merrimac Lions Club, P.O. Box 5, Merrimac 01860.

For more information, call the Merrimac Senior Center at 978-346-9549.
