[ARCHIVED] Preparing for Town Meeting

Preparing for Town Meeting

There are a variety of ways in which Town Meeting members and the public can learn about the articles for Annual Town Meeting, which begins on May 2, 2011.

Did you miss the Warrant Review?The Warrant Review that was held on April 14, 2011 was televised by Amherst Media and will be rebroadcast several times on Channel 17 as well as being available to view on your computer “On Demand” a couple of days after the meeting. Visit the Amherst Media “Meetings on Demand” page at http:// www.amherstmedia.org/meetings.. Click on the “Town Meeting and Related Events” section and select “April 14, 2011 Warrant Review”.

Precinct Meetings – a good way to get to know your Town Meeting representatives!
At a Precinct Meeting, Town Meeting members and the public gather to learn about and discuss the articles to be decided at Town Meeting with each other. This year the orientation for new Town Meeting members will occur during the first 30 minutes of each Precinct Meeting rather than before the Warrant Review. You can attend any of the Precinct Meetings regardless of where you live in town. The Precinct Meetings will be held at the following times: April 25, 2011, 7:00 to 9:30 pm, Middle School Library - Precincts 2 & 9
April 26, 2011, 7:00 to 9:30 pm, Crocker Farm School Library - Precincts 7 & 8 April 27, 2011, 7:00 to 9:30 pm, Immanuel Lutheran Church - Precincts 1 & 3
April 28, 2011, 7:00 to 9:30 pm, Police Station Community Room - Precincts 5 & 6 April 30, 2011, 3:00 to 5:30 pm, Police Station Community Room - Precincts 4 & 10

There will be a Bus Tour of various places related to Town Meeting articles on Sunday, May 1 from 2 to 4 pm. Town Meeting members should meet in the Middle School parking lot before 2 pm on Sunday so we can get started promptly. This is usually a fun, informal experience to see parts of our community up close and learn how they are affected by the actions of Town Meeting. The Bus Tour will not be televised this year.

Annual Town Meeting begins on Monday, May 2, 2011 at 7:30 pm in the Middle School Auditorium and will continue as needed on these additional evenings: May 4, 9, 11, 16 18, 23, 25 and June 1, 6, 13, 15, 20 and 22, 2011. Visit www.amherstma.gov/townmeeting
