[ARCHIVED] Town Meeting Information Session

In preparation for the June 22 Town Meeting there will be an informational webinar at 7 pm on June 15.  The purpose of this webinar is to provide the public with information on this year’s Town Meeting process and allow for presentations and questions on various articles.  In order to reduce person to person exposure time, the Canton Finance Committee and Town Moderator are holding this Article Review Session through Zoom to explain and discuss the merits of each essential Town Meeting Article. A Special Town Meeting is being held after the Annual Town Meeting at 7:05 PM.

Articles have been designated either as essential or non-essential. The list of Essential and Non-Essential articles can be found here.  Essential Articles will be acted upon on June 22nd and non-essential Articles will be deferred until the next Town Meeting. The Finance committee also plans to make more use of the Consent Agenda this year. Similar to the Annual Town Meeting, Articles on the Special Town Meeting Warrant will be deemed essential or non- essential and a Consent Agenda is being proposed.

Please take this opportunity to watch the June 15th review meeting so that as many questions that can be answered before the Town Meeting and Special Town Meeting; thereby reducing debate time and person to person exposure time.   Registrations can be made at the following web address:
