How to Become a Town Meeting Member - Only 1 signature is required to have your name on the ballot in the Annual Town Election. The deadline for getting your name on the ballot is usually in January or early February. Occasionally there are other openings during the year when a TM member resigns. Call the Town Clerk's office (259-3035) or click here for more information.
The Select Board, Finance Committee, and Planning Board all discuss various upcoming articles in the months before Town Meeting. Viewing the discussion by these boards can give us all a more complete understanding of the articles.All of their meetings are video recorded by Amherst Media and can be viewed on cable Channel 17 or on the computer via Amherst Media’s Meetings On Demand.
