With higher-than-expected revenue this fiscal year, the council readjusted the budget after its June 2013 passage, allocating $2 million to pay down the town's unfunded post-employment benefits liability, and smaller amounts to increase maintenance in Holbrook-Palmer Park and along the public right-of-way, pay for a master plan for the civic center, boost code enforcement, and support the emergency preparedness program.

Also on the agenda: The council will revisit the question of whether to support a $2.5 million project to renovate the carriage house in Holbrook-Palmer Park; council members will take a second look at a proposal to cede some of the public right-of-way on Parker Avenue to property owners; and the council will discuss possible use of the Gilmore House in the park, which has for years been used as the town manager's residence but is currently unoccupied because current manager George Rodericks continues to live in his longtime home in Marin County.
One possible use: as accommodations for police officers at the conclusion of their shifts, especially those who must commute a long distance to and from work.
The meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers at 94 Ashfield Road, in the Town Center.
