To this day, Hingham continues its long tradition of having the people serve as the town’s legislature; of having the people take responsibility for deciding issues of critical importance to the community. We do this through Open Town Meeting, where each registered voter who takes part in the meeting does so with “voice and vote”.
On Tuesday, November 1 at 7PM, we will have a Special Town Meeting, the primary purpose of which will be to consider issues regarding two major capital projects, a new elementary school and a new public safety facility. The meeting will be held at Hingham High School; please plan to arrive by 6:30, so we can start promptly at 7.
Meeting details can be found in the warrant, which has been mailed to each household, and on the town website.
Self-governance is both a profound privilege and a civic responsibility. Please be present on Tuesday, November 1 and take part in the entirety of the proceedings.
Michael J. Puzo, Hingham Town Moderator
