Budget Statement

The proposed budget for this department provides staff and regulatory boards with the necessary tools for the management of growth and development in Provincetown.

During the pandemic, the department successfully implemented an online permit tracking software system for all divisions and all permits and licenses. The system standardizes application submission and allows full transparency for board members and the public. The system also streamlines internal operations allowing concurrent processing and tracking for all permits across all divisions.

The fiscal year 2024 proposed personnel budget follows the union and nonunion compensation plans and is consistent with the updated Compensation Study. The Town Manager is currently evaluating reorganization of the department from the top down.
