Officials eye consolidating some services


“In terms of other areas, everything is on the table,” Kumm said.

The committee was resurrected after a similar committee in 2011 stalled because of turnover among the members after the election that year. Kumm pushed to restart the review.

The committee began meeting as the city and school officials worked to establish a written list and value of service charge backs, which are costs the city charges to the schools for things like the school resource officers and grounds keeping.

Kumm said the committee does not have any authority to make cuts or personnel decisions. Its purpose is to review certain parts of the city and schools’ budgets and make recommendations to the School Committee and the City Council. Those bodies must vote on any budgetary changes.
