Child care is provided so the parents of young children can attend the meeting.

“This year I will allow questions to be presented by citizens outside the meeting venue. Special rules and procedures will be in place as we experiment with this innovation,” DiSalvo wrote in his annual moderator’s message. “In sum, citizens observing the meeting but unable to attend will be allowed to email questions to a secure website and, after proper vetting for redundancy and voter identity, have their question posed to the meeting. Only questions will be presented - no statements of position, amendments or motions will be allowed. Further, severe time limits on the period of outside the room queries will be in place so as not to disrespect those who actually attend Town Meeting.”
