Town Meeting & Election

Weston's government is conducted in an Open Town Meeting, Board of Selectmen, and Town Manager form. Town Meeting is the legislative body where all spending and changes to the Town's General and Zoning by-laws must be approved. It is conducted by the elected Town Moderator. Any citizen of Weston who is a registered voter may participate in Town Meeting.


Annual Town Meeting and Special Town Meeting


The required Annual Town Meeting normally starts the first or second Monday in May, and is called to order at 7:00 p.m. in the Weston High School auditorium, 444 Wellesley Street. Additional sessions, if needed, are typically held the following Wednesday and then Monday the following week.

A town meeting scheduled during another time of the year is called a Special Town Meeting and the Selectmen may call a Special Town Meeting at any time during the year as necessary. Weston annually holds a fall Special Town Meeting the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
