Residents wishing to submit a Citizens' Petition for an article on the May 2019 Annual Town Meeting warrant must submit the appropriate paperwork to the Town Manager no later than February 28, 2019. The Town Manager has arranged for Town Counsel to be available on February 6th at Town Hall from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. to assist petitioners with their article's language.


Please refer to the "Guide to Citizens' Petitions for Town Meeting," which can be found on the Request an Article by Petition web page. This guide provides helpful explanations and procedures, as well as the appropriate paperwork that needs to be submitted. 


Consultation with the Town Manager is also strongly recommended for form and procedure. Citizens who want to bring something before Town Meeting are encouraged to speak with the Town Manager and the Board of Selectmen well in advance of Annual Town Meeting. By doing so, they may be able to avoid the need for formal petitions.


Annual Town Meeting will begin on Monday, May 6th at 7:00 p.m. Action may only be taken at Town Meeting on items appearing in the warrant.  For more information on what Town Meeting is, please refer to the Town's website.
