On Saturday, the Tewksbury Republican Town Committee will host “Breakfast with a Select Board Member.” Mark Kratman will be the speaker. The event will begin at 9 a.m. at Tewksbury Town Hall, and all residents are invited to attend. The goal of the discussion is to familiarize residents with the demands of Board members and to encourage residents to consider joining the town’s numerous boards and committees.
See the flyer, below, for more info.
The Tewksbury Finance Committee met on Monday to go over, in detail, the articles for Special Town Meeting, which is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 3 at TMHS. A number of residents asked questions on topics including sidewalks, lockers for the Tewksbury Police Department and the possibility of even more pickleball courts. The Finance Committee unanimously recommended adoption of all articles, save one pending the Select Board.
The Tewksbury TV YouTube replay is an excellent way to learn about articles before heading to STM. When attendees are informed, the meeting moves along more quickly.
Note that AlphaBest will offer free child care to families of Tewksbury school-age students in grades K-8, to enable parents to attend Special Town Meeting. You must pre-register for a spot so AlphaBest can properly staff the program. Dropoff will begin at 6:45 p.m., and children must be picked up at the end of Town Meeting or by 9:00 p.m., whichever comes first.
Children are also welcome to sit with their parents at Town Meeting.
