November 18, 2022 A Special Town Meeting Postscript By Gregory T. Federspiel
An impressive turn-out of voters filled the auditorium and the cafeteria at the Middle High School last Monday, November 14th for a Special Town Meeting. Over 560 residents showed up to debate articles ranging from supplemental budget requests to a series of zoning by-law amendments. This was about double the more typical town meeting attendance. A big thank you to all those who took the time to engage in what is considered one of the purist forms of direct democracy and a critical forum for managing the Town.
