[Amended ATM 5-7-2001 by Art. 24; 5-1-2017 ATM by Art. 10]
There shall be published and distributed among the voters of the Town by any means approved by the Board of Selectmen, at least 14 days before the deliberative session of the Annual Town Meeting, the Annual Town Report, which shall contain a descriptive review of the year's activities from each of the Town boards, commissions, and committees including significant events, financial data, and legal matters as required by state laws and Town bylaw.
Each of the foregoing reports shall be in the hands of the Selectmen on or before January 15 in each year. For neglect of this last provision every individual required to report shall forfeit $10 and every member of a board required to report shall forfeit his proportionate share of a sum of $10 divided equally among the members of such board. A list of the officers and members of boards in default under this provision shall be made at the next executive meeting of the Selectmen, and no person who is thus in default shall thereafter receive any salary or other payment from the Town unless he shall have paid the penalty hereby provided.
