The Annual Town Meeting is a meeting of the residents of Knutsford, not of the Town Council. The Town Meeting must be held between 1st March and 1st June 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 2019 Town Meeting will be a celebration of volunteering with the presentation of the Town Awards. It will be held on Thursday 7th March in St John’s Church.
The meeting will include an Open Forum which 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.
