Post image for The week in government: Advisory on schools and budgets <em>(no Board of Selectmen meeting on Tuesday)</em> (Updated)

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

Note: If you are looking below for the anticipated February 5th Board of Selectmen meeting, you won’t find it.

The BOS originally planned to hold a pre-Town Meeting run-through this Tuesday night with the Moderator. Town Administrator Mark Purple explained that they are currently looking for another night that works – likely next week. So, stay tuned for news on that.

Now here’s what is currently posted:

As always, 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.
