The most powerful way for Westford voters to directly impact how the Town runs itself and how it spends its money is to attend Town Meeting. And the best way to get the most out of Town Meeting is to watch the League of Women Voters of Westford’s Annual Town Meeting Preview:
Town Meeting has two primary responsibilities:
- Establish an annual budget by voting to appropriate money for all town departments
- Vote on the town’s local statutes, the bylaws
Town Meeting is the legislative branch of Westford’s government, and all registered voters may attend, speak, and vote at the next Town Meeting on Saturday, June 11. The meeting – being held on Westford Academy Trustees Field, 30 Patten Road – begins at 9:00 a.m. The rain date is Sunday, June 12, at 9:00 a.m.
