Committee 21 Update
With Wellesley voters likely to be asked to approve a budget override this spring, Committee 21 is addressing a number of Frequently Asked Questions in the coming weeks, starting with some of the basics about town government.
Last week we addressed “What is an Override?”This week’s FAQ: What is Town Meeting?
“Town Meeting” is a form of local government that has been practiced in New England since colonial times, when all the residents of a town came together to make decisions about how the town was governed. Today, the town of Wellesley is governed by a representative Town Meeting that meets annually. A total of 240 Town Meeting members (i.e., representatives) serve as the legislative body that makes final decisions on items like the town budget, town bylaws, zoning changes, appropriations and many other issues put forth by the five-member Board of Selectmen. The proceedings of Town Meeting are open to the public and televised live on the local cable channel.
What is Town Meeting’s role in an Override?Town Meeting members vote on a budget proposed by the Board of Selectmen. If the increase in the proposed budget exceeds the 2-1/2 percent limit imposed by state law, voters will be asked to approve an override “What is an Override?” in the form of a ballot question. This ballot question is usually put to the voters in May or early June.
