Can I get any help in creating a petitioned article for the warrant?
Yes. In an effort to make sure that any article considered at town meeting is legal and valid, the Town may assist you in crafting an article that has legal merit. In order to have the time necessary to provide this assistance and review, it is important to have your draft article prepared well before the close of the warrant (which is 30 days prior to the start of town meeting). Anyone interested in submitting a petitioned article should have a draft article for review by later January, for example, if placed on an April town meeting warrant. See the Town Clerk, who can help guide you through the process.
