Weekly Buzz | Provide Your Input at the Recreation Commission Meeting this Week
Plus, some last-minute reviews of the warrant articles for May Town Meeting
Good morning, friends!
I got to sleep in today, and after a full day yesterday, I’m just now finishing up today’s Buzz. I hope you’re enjoying your weekend and preparing for some warm days ahead later in the week! 😎
There’s lots on tap this week, but our meting hours will be dominated by Town Meeting. Be sure to take a look at Article Roundups 1, 2, and 3 to see what we’ll be voting on. Also, as always, be sure to look to each Daily Buzz for up-to-date agendas and information.
More info in the Warrant and Warrant Backup.
Monday, May 9
8:30 AM - Planning Board meets to continue their discussion of candidates for the open position. (Join via Webex)
4:00 PM - Council on Aging is supposed to meet, but their agenda isn’t posted; since the requirement is to post 48 hours before the meeting, I anticipate this meeting being canceled.
5:45 PM - Select Board has an early start in hopes of finishing before Town Meeting. They’ll be appointing a new DPW Water & Sewer Lead Foreman, receiving some updates, and voting to approve a few things related to Town Meeting, as well as the Fox Hill Feasibility Study. (Join via Webex)
6:30 PM - Recreation Commission meets for their regular meeting, where they’ll be discussing programming, parks, and inviting public participation, as they always do. I know there was a good deal of commentary online a week or two ago, and this would be a wonderful opportunity to provide this input directly to the commission. I want to say I’ll try and make it to represent my fellow residents, but as I’ll be attending Town Meeting for 3+ hours, I can’t guarantee it.
7:30 PM - Town Meeting, night 1/X. Precinct representatives will be discussing and voting on the first of the operational budget and maybe capital articles.

I tried to sign in to the Recreation Commission meeting but there was no webex link on the main Burlington website under the calendar section. How do people join the meeting? Also, there are no email addresses listed for the members on the town website. How can I email the members? Thanks!
