The warrant is the list of the items to be considered during Wellesley's Annual Town Meeting; this year Town Meeting is scheduled to begin on Monday, March 25, at 7 PM in the Wellesley Middle School Auditorium.
Each specific item in the warrant is called an article and this year there are 42 articles that have been proposed by Town boards, committees or citizens. The article topics relate to committee reports, appropriations, amendments to zoning and town bylaws, new general laws, petitions for special legislation, and other matters that require the authorization of Town Meeting Members.
The warrant is compiled by the Board of Selectmen and posted on a signboard near Town Hall and on the Town of Wellesley website; copies are also available in the Town Clerk's Office, the Selectmen's Office and at the Wellesley Police Station.
A public hearing on the 2019 Warrant articles is planned for Wednesday, January 30, at 7 PM during the Advisory Committee meeting. Residents are invited to attend to ask questions and share their thoughts.
