The Prudential Committee is responsible for the finances and governing of the village of Cotuit. The three-member committee is elected to oversee Freedom Hall, including maintenance and repairs, deal with business brought before the village, and manage the finances of the village.

Recent changes in personnel have resulted in the hiring of a financial firm to handle day-to-day financial matters and provide reporting that the Committee needs. The Committee has also embarked on some long-overdue repairs and maintenance on Freedom Hall including interior painting, electrical, and basement repairs.

If you are interested in learning a little more about how the Prudential Committee was formed, we are fortunate to have permission of the Historical Society to include documents from their archives. Read the story here.
