League of Women Voters: What is a Special Town Meeting?
A special town meeting is a meeting where registered voters and property owners will have the opportunity to listen to a proposed referendum, ask questions, make comments, and vote on the proposal. A quorum of 50 eligible voters is required to conduct the meeting. Depending on the subject matter of the meeting, voting may take place at the meeting itself, or immediately following the adjourned meeting, or immediately following the meeting as well as on the following Saturday.
A Special Town Meeting has been scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 19. The meeting will take place at 7:30 p.m. at the Clune Center, Wilton High School. Voting on one referendum question will take place immediately following that meeting in the lobby of the Clune Center. For those unable to attend the meeting, voting will continue on Saturday, Nov. 23, at the Wilton High School Clune Center from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
If you are unable to attend the meeting and would like to hear the presentation and discussion, the Nov. 19 Special Town Meeting will be recorded and aired on Wilton’s Government Access Channel (Cablevision Channel 79) and streamed on the town of Wilton’s website, wiltonct.org, later in the week.
