Your Town…Your Neighbors…Your Television!

So, What Did You Miss?

You knew they were going to be marathon sessions even before the first person showed up at the Memorial Field parking lot. With an extremely shortened 2020 Town meeting, there was a backlog of issues that had to be addressed at this year’s session. Now that the town had some experience in staging the event, and learned the power of providing presentations before the gavel was struck to convene the meeting, they were able to accomplish some pretty intensive legislating at the 2021 Special and Annual Town Meeting. Yuxiao Yuan has summaries of both sessions.

Special Town Meeting: Saturday, May 1

Annual Town Meeting: Monday, May 3
