The Annual Town Meeting is a meeting of the Town of Knutsford, not of the Town Council. The Town Meeting must be held between April 1st and June 1st and is called by the Town Mayor. The meeting is chaired by the Mayor with the Town Clerk taking the minutes but Councillors have no more standing than other electors of Knutsford.
The Town Meeting affords Community Groups the opportunity to do short presentations to the town on what they have done in the past year and what they will be working on over the next year.
The 2017 Town Meeting will be held on April 12th.
The Open Forum is an opportunity for residents to raise issues they feel are important to the town. This could be:
- Suggesting ideas for the Town Council to investigate
- Raising concerns about planned activities in the town
- Asking questions to the Town Council
- Raising general issues affecting the town
Any registered elector for Knutsford has the right to speak at the meeting.
