Policy for Third Party Requests
Due to the rising number of third-party requests (requests for contributions) and requests for increases in the amount to be funded, the following policy has been adopted:
All third-party requests will require a sponsor to circulate a formal petition to be signed by a number of voters equal to 10% of the number who voted in the last town gubernatorial election. For 2015, that number will be 41 signatures. This petition can be downloaded or printed by clicking here: Third Party Petition.
All third-party requests will be required to provide a written statement of what they have done to benefit the town or public in the past and what they will be able to do in the future.
Third party petitions must be submitted to the Town Clerk no later than June 30th, 2015 in order to be included in the warrant articles at the annual town meeting.
