An Early Primer on Annual Town Meeting

Breaking down the What, the When and the Where of Lexington’s legislative body.

Wondering about annual Town Meeting? Because, yes, it is that time of year again:

Lexington’s annual Town Meeting is set to begin Monday, March 18. And, per the usual, Town Meeting will be held at the Cary Memorial Building. The opening date is March 18, but Town Meeting will not convene during Passover (March 25) or the school vacation week from April 15 to April 19.

There are 34 articles on the warrant, but one of the most eye-catching items – the proposed purchase of Scottish Rite property on Marrett Road – will be taken up in the special Town Meeting immediately preceding the annual.

Beyond budgetary items, other articles of interest can be found among the “general articles,” from 26 to 33 on the warrant. Among them include an official town seal, deleting the requirement that the warrant be mailed to each Lexington home and adding electronic voting to methods allowed at Town Meeting.
