BUDGET 2021 Update - Bloomfield is working on ways to continue to engage residents in the budget process.  It is important that everyone has an opportunity to ask their questions or voice their comments on this process.  We have set up an email specifically for this purpose.  Send all questions or comments to budget2021@bloomfieldct.org and we will do our best to address them at the next budget meeting.
