  • § 107-10.2. Districts; report of Selectboard; meetings; voting

    (a) The Selectboard shall divide the territory of the Town into four districts and shall define their respective boundaries. The districts shall be so established as to consist of compact and contiguous territory and shall be bounded so far as possible by the center line of streets or by geographical limits. The district boundaries shall be reviewed and, if need be, wholly or partially revised, or the number of districts changed, by the Selectboard, every five years thereafter, and in any year when so directed by vote of the annual Representative Town Meeting held that year.

    (b) On or before the 15th day of November of any year in which said districts are established, revised, or changed as provided in subsection (a) of this section, the Selectboard shall file a report of their proceedings with the Town Clerk, with maps and descriptions of all of the districts, and shall cause a copy of such maps and descriptions to be posted at the municipal building and in at least one public place in each district. The division of the Town into districts, and any revision of such districts, shall take effect upon the date of the filing of the report thereof by the Selectboard with the Town Clerk.

    (c) Elections of the Town Meeting members for the several districts shall be held on the first Tuesday in March, at the same hour, and at such places within the Town as the Selectboard shall direct in the warning for such elections. (Amended 2003, No. M-6, § 2.)
