WARRANT

ANNUAL TOWN MEETING – MAY 9, 2011

THE COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS

Middlesex, ss.


To either of the Constables of the Town of Carlisle in the County of Middlesex:

GREETINGS

IN THE NAME OF the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, you are hereby directed to notify and warn the inhabitants of said Town, qualified to vote in elections and town affairs, to meet at the Corey Building at 150 Church Street in said Carlisle on Monday, the Ninth of May next, at seven o’clock in the evening, and thereafter continuing from day to day until completed, then and there to act on the following articles:



CONSENT AGENDA

In an effort to streamline Town Meeting and therefore make it more inviting to voters, the Board of Selectmen has decided to continue with the concept of the Consent Agenda. This agenda speeds the passage of articles which the Selectmen feel, in consultation with the Moderator and Finance Committee should generate no controversy and can be properly voted without debate. The purpose of the Consent Agenda is to allow motions under these articles to be acted upon as one unit and to be passed without debate.


THE TOWN WILL BE ASKED TO APPROVE THE USE OF A CONSENT AGENDA UNDER ARTICLE 1.
Should the Town approve the use of a CONSENT AGENDA the Selectmen have voted to recommend that the following articles be acted upon on the Consent Agenda (Articles 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9). The articles to be taken up on the Consent Agenda are indicated by a double asterisk (**).
At the call of the Consent Agenda, the Moderator will call out the numbers of the Articles, one by one. If one or more voters object to any particular Article being included in the Consent Agenda, they should say the word “Hold” in a loud voice when the number is called. The Article will then be removed automatically from the Consent Agenda and restored to its original place in the Warrant, to be debated and voted upon in the usual manner. After the calling of the individual items in the Consent Agenda, the Moderator will ask that all items remaining be passed AS A UNIT by the voters.
Please carefully review the list of articles proposed in the printed Warrant Book that is mailed to each home. If you have any questions about the consent articles or procedure, please call the Town Administrator at 978-371-6688 before Town Meeting.
