and committee meetings are open to the public, by law.
We are using the term
'public' meeting here to indicate a larger meeting, generally called to discuss
a specific subject. This could be on an issue that is affecting the community,
or, the Annual Town Meeting which is held each year in spring.
Kington Town’s Annual Meeting
The Annual Town Meeting is not a Council meeting but is a meeting of residents to raise matters of interest or concern or to discuss a topic that affects the Town. For 2019 it will take place on Wednesday 22nd May at 7.30pm at the Primary School.
The Mayor will present this year's Civic Award. The retiring Mayor will gave a report looking back over his year in office and there will be a presentation on environmental matters.
This is also an opportunity to come along to meet your new and existing Town Councillors.

Other Public Meetings
The Town Council organises public meetings where there are specific local issues that require consultation: this is so that the views of a wider range of residents can be taken into account in the Council's decision-making.
