UPDATE ~ as of Friday, July 10: ATM is delayed by one hour, beginning now at 10 am https://www.thebedfordcitizen.org/2020/07/annual-town-meeting-2020-start-delayed-one-hour-until-10-am/

With Annual Town Meeting coming up at 9 am on Saturday, July 11 questions need answers, so The Bedford Citizen has organized them, and we’ll consider each in order.

 

THE WEATHER

With Tropical Storm Fay making its way up the coast headed toward Central Massachusetts as of Thursday evening, the Town will evaluate the weather both on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.

The Citizen will post the latest information as soon as it’s available, as will the Town’s website and social media channels. There is apt to be a town-wide Code Red Robocall as well.

Should it be necessary, the likely date for a rescheduled meeting is Sunday, July 12.

In order to assure the safety of all residents, all attendees will be required to wear face coverings for the entirety of Town Meeting. A mask will be provided by the Town, if you do not have one.  Physically distanced chairs will be set up on the turf field, and Town staff will guide residents to their seats in order to ensure proper distancing. Hand sanitizer, sunscreen, and ADA-accessible restrooms will be available for all attendees. Staff will also assist residents with how to properly leave the field once Town Meeting has concluded.
