   To summarize briefly , the Town’s financial position remained strong in 2021 . Sales taxes provided 38% of the revenue toward governmental services including fire , police and roads , while property tax provided only 1% of associated revenue . User charges , grants and other contributions comprised another 46% of the funding for those services . Of the 406 positions funded in these areas , 53% provide fire or police services .
    The Town’s debt decreased by $6 . 3 million , or 6% , in 2021 . The Town has no general obligation ( tax - supported ) debt , and its credit rating remains strong .
