MAYNARD – The Town Moderator and Select Board announce that the date of Annual Town Meeting has been moved to June 11 at 9 a.m. in the Fowler Middle School parking lot due to a recent uptick in COVID-19 cases in the Town and in Middlesex County.
Town Meeting was scheduled to convene on Monday, May 16, in the Fowler Middle School Auditorium. In recognition of the most recent COVID-19 data, the Maynard Board of Health recommended Town Meeting be held outdoors.
Town Moderator Dick Downey agreed, and postponed the May 16 session. Town Meeting will convene on Saturday, June 11, at 9 a.m. in the parking lot of Fowler Middle School on Tiger Drive with a rain date of Sunday, June 12 at 9 a.m. in the same location.
Town Meeting will once again use the “drive-in movie style” format, with cars parked in every space to accommodate as many automobiles as possible.
Drivers will remain in their cars for voter registration. Wearing a mask during registration will be required.
Voters will be provided a packet with procedural instructions and materials and be directed to a parking spot. Inactive voters will be routed to a special table to update their status, and then directed to a parking space.
Residents will find the full Town Meeting warrant, supplemental materials, and more information here.
