The town meeting warning must, by separate articles, specifically indicate the business to be transacted, to include the offices and the questions to be voted upon. The wording of town meeting articles, unless specifically articulated in statute, is indeterminate. For that reason, the VLCT Municipal Assistance Center has developed this resource that contains model town meeting articles and associated guidance. Some model articles require editing by either entering your own words or picking a phrase or number, as indicated by italics enclosed with brackets.
If you have more questions about town meeting requirements, please view our Town Meeting homepage or contact the staff at the VLCT Municipal Assistance Center. Members may reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-649-7915 for assistance.
