Town and City Documents

Warrant Article Petition Template and Municipal Resolve

The document you use will depend upon how your municipality governs. Contact your Town/City Clerk to find out.   Important tips about petitions and warrant articles:  
If your town requires signatures on a petition in order to get an article in your town's warrant for the annual town meeting: be aware they will probably require that petition you circulate to have the proposed article itself on every page of the petition.  Check with your town clerk about properly wording the article. Double check with the clerk about design of the petition (i.e., what-all columns you need).  
We have provided 2 different examples of possible wording for an article.  The shorter version came from an article that was written with the advice of the town clerk in a small Maine town, and matches their typical warrant article.  The longer version resembles the wording used by some New Hampshire towns last year.  Check with your town to find the best wording for your local needs.

Here are some resources to address questions that will come up as you talk with your Town Officials and others in your communities:
