In 2015 Citizens for Milford proposed to the Board of Selectmen that a working group be formed to identify opportunities to improve the quality and efficiency of Town Meeting. The Board of Selectmen unanimously approved this proposal and gave Citizens for Milford the green light to establish a Town Meeting Working Group (TMWG), which will periodically report progress to the Board of Selectmen. The TMWG held its first meeting in June and defined the following as its mission statement:
The objective of the TMWG is to evaluate the entire process and to improve upon the methods of presenting information to Milford residents while maintaining a pleasant and informative forum to hear their concerns and opinions. It is essential that precinct members have ample opportunity to understand the issues and be better prepared to make rational decisions.
More information about the TMWG, as well as a link to the group’s meeting minutes, is available on the Town Meeting Working Group page.
