Town Meeting 2021 information

BALLOT VOTING DAY: You are hereby notified to meet at the Goshen Town Hall, 54 Mill Village Road North Goshen, NH, on Tuesday, March 09, 2021. THE POLLS WILL BE OPEN FROM 8:00 AM TO 7:00 PM.

Articles 2-11, THE BUSINESS SESSION WILL START AT 6:30 PM.

Note location change:  Due to the size of our Town Hall, we are unable to keep people safe and still hold the town meeting, while distanced.  Under the authority of RSA 39:1-b, the Board of Selectmen looked at other options to hold the business session.  Thankfully, the Lempster Community School has offered use of the gym, with no rental fee; we will pay for custodian.  Per RSA 39:1-b, transportation will be provided from the Goshen Town Hall to the Lempster Community School to all who require busing.  Ballot voting day will remain at the Goshen Town Hall, the same way the General Election transpired in November.

Please take the time to examine below the warrant articles & budget proposal for the 2021 election
