The BoS voted to open the warrant for our Annual Town Meeting on Tuesday, February 17, 2009. The warrant will close at noon Friday, March 13, 2009. The board will review the draft at the March 17, 2009 meeting and the final warrant on April 7, 2009.
Annual town meeting is a wonderful opportunity for members of the community to more fully participate in the affairs of town government. The board of selectmen have no say in the content of the articles or whether they can be included on the Annual Town Meeting Warrant. Only 10 signatures are required to put a citizen’s petition on the warrant.
Contact me if you have questions on how to do this or if you need logistical support. Remember that by-law changes undergo scrutiny by the Attorney General’s office to insure they are compliant with existing laws and the state constitution.
