This model and corresponding guidance has been revised for 2021. 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 the following (see below) memo that contains model town meeting articles. Some model articles require editing by either entering your own words or picking a phrase or number, as indicated by italics enclosed with brackets.
These models have been developed for illustrative purposes only. VLCT makes no express or implied endorsement or recommendation of any model or any express or implied guarantee of legal enforceability or legal compliance. VLCT also does not represent that any model is appropriate for any particular municipality. Please seek legal counsel to review any proposed model before use.
Members may contact the Municipal Assistance Center at email@example.com or 1-800-649-7915 for assistance.
