Sutton Massachusetts Town Meeting
If you've never lived in a location that has town meetings, you're in for a treat. Instead of wondering just what your government is doing with your money, you can actually stand up, be heard, and vote on what happens! Every bylaw change needs to be approved by the community here. If you have an opinion on how the rules are being changed, you simply show up at the town meeting and make your point known.
Town meetings are held every spring and fall in Sutton MA. Make sure you attend!
I list highlights of past meetings here.
The main issue at the Spring meeting involved money to support Lake Singletary.
