“The Town of Goshen has been very pleased with the HCG Regional Financial Management Services’ performance this past year. The process of bill payment is running smoothly, as is the payroll’s. They have been most helpful to the finance committee and other employees in educating them on the ins and outs of MA regulations in the finance arena. Additionally, they have been most helpful in assisting us and getting back to us with answers to our questions.”

– Diane Bushee, Chair of the Goshen Selectboard
