Below you will find the proposed annual budgets for each year as well as the Budget Tour Booklet. if you would like to view an older budget, please contact the Town Manager's office. 

Barre Town utilizes fund accounting, as many municipalities do. Eight fund budgets are included in the Town budget. Each budget has a specific purpose except for the General Fund, which is used for general expenses. At Barre Town’s annual Town Meeting Day on the second Tuesday of May, voters elect to approve or disapprove the Budget Committee’s proposed General and Highway Fund budgets. Approval of these two budgets are decided by voters because their primary source of revenue (83% for the General Fund and 92% for the Highway Fund) is property taxes.
