2021 Town Budget

The Town of Goffstown is a Municipal Budget Act Town (Chapter 32) with an official Budget Committee which consists of 12 elected members and 4 representatives. Representatives include one member from each of the following boards: Select Board, School Board, Goffstown Village Water Precinct and Grasmere Village Water Precinct. The Town of Goffstown is also an Official Ballot Town (RSA 40:13) which means that the Annual Town Meeting is divided into two sessions. The first session, known as the Deliberative or Ballot Determination Session, is held between the first and second Saturday following the last Monday in January (RSA 40:13 III) which this year is between 1/30/21-2/6/21.

The Town's 2021 Deliberative Session will be held on Tuesday, 2/2/21 at 7 pm at the Goffstown High School (snow date is Thursday, 2/4/21 at 7 pm at the Goffstown High School). At this meeting the articles are explained, discussed and debated. It is this meeting which determines what appears on the official ballot. The second session known as the Official Ballot Session is held at the polls (Bartlett Elementary School and Goffstown High School) on 3/9/21 (second Tuesday in March). At this time the voters will vote on the budget, all separate and special articles as well as elect candidates and any zoning ordinance amendments.

The budget process starts in July when Department Heads develop their budgets. In September the Department Heads present their budget requests to The Select Board. During October the Select Board develops their budget and sends it to the Budget Committee in early November. In November and December, the Budget Committee reviews the Select Board's budget, requests information from Department Heads, and develops their budget. The Budget Committee submits their budget by the budget submission deadline of 1/12/21 (second Tuesday of January) and schedules their required Public Hearing before 1/19/21 (third Tuesday of January).


The Goffstown Budget Committee will hold a remote (via Zoom) Public Hearing at 7:00 p.m. on January 12, 2021 on the 2021 Budgets for the Town, School District, Goffstown Village Water Precinct and Grasmere Village Water Precinct. Meeting information is on the Town Website Calendar.
