At our last meeting the Jamaica Selectboard voted to move the date of the Jamaica Town Meeting to Saturday, May 1, at 1:00PM. The tentative location would be at the Town Garage which will allow for more space to safe distance and possibly allow to open the doors and have the meeting partially take place outdoors.
The hope is that by holding the meeting on a Saturday this may increase participation for those citizens who cannot attend a weekday meeting.
New Vermont state legislation allows the board to move to Australian Ballot and change the date but does not allow for a remote or electronic meeting. The board choose not to go to Australian Ballot as the wish was to maintain the character of our Town Meetings where there is open dialog and voting on the Articles from the floor.
All town officers will continue to serve in their respective capacities until the rescheduled Town Meeting.
