The Annual Town Meeting in Brookfield takes place at 7 o'clock tonight about the municipal and school budgets for the coming fiscal year. Residents will also see a presentation about proposed capital projects. A vote will be taken for a referendum date of May 18th. Tonight's meeting will be held in the Brookfield High School auditorium.
District 2 voters will cast ballots on May 18th at the high school, but District 1 residents will be voting this year at St Marguerite Bourgeoys Church Parish Hall due to construction of a new school on the Huckleberry Hill site. The school will not be available as a polling location until the new building, called Candlewood Lake Elementary School, is completed. District 1 voters will cast ballots at 138 Candlewood Lake Road.
Absentee ballots can be mailed for a Referendum with less than 3 weeks notice due to a gubernatorial executive order. Due to the limited time between ballot availability and close of polls, absentee ballots will be mailed up to 4 days prior to the Referendum.
