Hello, Town Meeting Members!

This is an important email so please read through to the end.

Below my signature in this email, you will find a proposed schedule of articles for the upcoming Annual and Special Town Meetings. In preparation, please begin to review the motions and video presentations for the articles that you will find posted on the Town's website here:

https://www.lexingtonma.gov/2022atmarticles

Check back frequently as more documents will be added, including more information about the Consent Agenda items, which are indicated by double asterisks (**) on this webpage. Consent agenda items will be voted as a group - a single vote - and will not be debated at Town Meeting, nor will we view or hear presentations at our meeting. You will, however, have an opportunity to pose questions, and at the request of 10 or more members, an item may be removed from the Consent Agenda for separate consideration and debate.

The Deputy Moderator and I will send further updated schedules in future emails. Please understand that this schedule is subject to change, except where "DATE CERTAIN" is indicated.
