A Mail-In Meeting Idea
Town Administrator Dan Hoort says town meeting is June 1, and he’s recommending the town election be scheduled for June 18. Hoort is pursuing the possibility of allowing town meeting participants to vote by mail. [See separate story on page 1.] He said he needs to ask state government for special legislation to make it possible. It would involve a “live forum” where people can discuss the warrant articles together before the vote. —K.C. Myers
