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.

The biggest thing on the agenda this week is obviously tonight’s Annual Town Meeting. While most of the meetings below are around preparing for that, there are additional items on agendas worth noting.

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.
