Here is a selection of the committee and board meetings for the week along with my selected highlights from the agendas. All these meetings are open to the public, so you’re welcome to stop on by. 

Editor’s Note: Ironically, the combined school committees will convene 30 minutes earlier than previously posted to discuss issues related to starting school later. The meeting is at 6:00 pm on Wed, not 6:30 pm.

Of course, as I always post – be aware that changes to the meeting schedule are known to happen throughout the week. For an updated list of meetings, visit the town website.
