Town Meeting makes all of the decisions about the Town of Milton's budgets and local Bylaws. Milton's government is a Representative Town Meeting, which means that only Town Meeting Members can vote at Town Meetings, unlike the Open Town Meeting form of government. That's why it's very important that all the Town Meeting seats are filled to have full representation of each of the ten precincts.
Every year, the Town of Milton holds a Local Election in which Town-wide offices as well as Representative Town Meeting Members from each of our ten voting precincts are elected. The elected term for Town Meeting Member is three years; however, should a resignation occur, there may be openings for one, or two-year periods.
