All district meetings are open to the public; residents are urged to attend and thereby learn how matters affecting them are being decided, ask questions, or express opinions.
Eleven standing committees and two special standing committees deal with major continuing activities of town government. Standing committees meet at a specified time the week before regular RTM meetings. Delegates and/or alternates from each district attend to hear the pros and cons of items referred to them. Residents may attend, and committee members report the results and votes at their district meetings.
