Massachusetts: Money may be coming back to your local municipality from the state.

State Rep. Geoff Diehl of Whitman says his district will receive roughly $360,000 in reverted funds–money left over from state agencies that was not spent in FY 2011.

Whitman will receive roughly $148,000, Abington roughly $120 thousand and East Bridgewater roughly $91,000.

Diehl says the final amount will be decided on October 31st, when the state closes the books on the 2011 fiscal year, but he expect there is more than $65 million dollars in available reversion money.

Diehl says the amount each town will receive is determined through a Chapter 70 funding formula, which is how unrestricted aid is divided up.

Diehl says this money is not earmarked or restricted, and can be used as the towns see fit.
