Rockland

Vote on Town Meeting quorum

Selectmen hope to reduce the number of attendees needed for Town Meeting. For as long as town employees can remember, the law has required the attendance of 300 registered voters to open a Town Meeting and 200 to stay the whole meeting to keep it open. The Board of Selectmen have placed an article in the May 6 Town Meeting warrant to reduce the quorum to 150 people to open the meeting and 50 to remain open. In past years, some Town Meetings have been delayed because attendance numbers were too low. Town Administrator Allan Chiocca said Rockland’s quorum is unusually high compared with surrounding towns.
