To: The Residents of Vienna
From: The Board of Selectmen Re: Town Meeting 2021
In order to be compliant with the current guidelines regarding COVID safety, we are finding it necessary to conduct our Annual Town Meeting in a different way this year. There will be no in-person meeting on the usual second Saturday of March. Instead, and after consultation with the Maine Municipal Association, things will proceed as follows:
1. The regular election WILL BE HELD on Friday, March 12, 2021 from noon to 8 p.m. at the Community Room on Kimball Pond Rd. Masking and social distancing will be required. Please wait in your car if it appears that the voting booths are full. We will be voting on elected positions as well as all articles usually enacted at town meeting.
2. There will be public hearing via Zoom with the Selectboard on Tuesday, March 2, 2021 at 7 p.m. for discussion, questions, and answers regarding articles for vote. A link to the Zoom hearing will be made available through both the town newsletter and website. The articles will be available to review prior to the hearing.
3. Absentee ballots will be available February 10, 2021 from the Town Clerk. Please be patient with us as we navigate through this new situation.
Sincerely, Town of Vienna Board of Selectmen
