NOTICE: Ward Boundary Review ZOOM Meeting – January 26, 2020 @ 5:30 PM

While it came to our attention just recently, it is still worth noting that the Town is having a public meeting (via Zoom) for it’s ward boundary review. To ensure adequate representation in local governments, municipalities will regularly review their ward composition.
