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 is property taxes.
