The Tisbury Annual Town Meeting: Preparing for Participation

On Thursday, March 10th and Thurday March 24th at 6pm, Tisbury's Vision Council will hold a meeting at Vineyard Haven Library to discuss the upcoming Town Meeting. This meeting is intended to help community members better understand Town Meeting procedures and the warrant articles that we will be voting on at the Annual and Special Town Meetings to be held on April 12th.

Deborah Medders, Town Moderator, will provide an overview of the Town Meeting process, share her thoughts on how we can prepare for Town Meeting, and discuss things that she has learned over the years. Following her presentation, she will answer questions from the group.

Deborah's presentation will be followed by a discussion of specific warrant articles. Warrant sponsors will present the background and intent of their articles. This will be an opportunity for community members to ask questions and gain a clear understanding of the warrants that we will be voting on in April. The meeting will help community members prepare for town meeting so that we will be able to hold a constructive conversation and make informed decisions.

Articles sponsored by Vineyard Haven Public Library and Community Preservation Committee were discussed on Thursday, March 10th. Additional articles will be discussed on Thursday, March 24th.
