District caucuses, pre-Town Meeting forum set for March 14

BRATTLEBORO — The Selectboard will hold a pre-town meeting information forum on Wednesday, March 14, at Academy School, beginning at 7 p.m.

Representative Town Meeting articles will be discussed, including the town school and municipal budgets and the fire department's ladder-truck bond issue.

At 6:30 p.m., town meeting members of each district will be available to meet with constituents to offer residents an opportunity to share their views and discuss articles to be voted on at the annual meeting.

Also at that time, all three districts will accept nominations to fill town meeting member vacancies for one year. District 1 has 13 seats to appoint, District 2 has three seats to appoint, and District 3 has eight seats to appoint.

Any residents from any of these districts interested in being considered for this position should be present at Wednesday's 6:30 p.m. caucus. Classroom locations at Academy School for each caucus will be posted in the school lobby that evening.

The public is invited to attend their district's caucus and stay for the information meeting.
