Town making moves for all-remote meeting
Wellesley Executive Director Meghan Jop said during the Sept. 13 Select Board meeting that the Town Meeting moderator wants to move the fall Special Town Meeting to an all-remote online platform, as was the case with the spring meeting. Jop said the town “will commence the actions necessary to do that.”
Jop also reminded Town Meeting members that the meeting is slated for Oct. 25-27, noting the 3 straight days is unusual. From there, the meeting would restart Nov. 2.
