Town meetings may be rescheduled


The date of the annual Town Meeting, now held on the Wednesday preceding the annual town election, which is scheduled for the third Saturday in May, may be changed to the Saturday before the election. Selectmen plan to submit an article for the May 14 Town Meeting warrant asking residents to support changing the annual event from a Wednesday evening to a Saturday during the day. “By moving it up a few days to a Saturday and holding it during the day, it will be more convenient for many residents,” said Town Coordinator Dale Pleau. “Town Meeting is held on a weeknight now and it often tends to run late, which can be difficult for people who have to get up early the next day and go to work, or get the kids off to school.” Selectmen discussed the proposed change at a recent meeting and voted unanimously to support it.
