Westport’s Annual Town Meeting is adjourned until Tuesday May 19 at 7 PM at Westport High School. The meeting has already acted on all articles except street acceptances. State law requires the Selectmen file the layout of any street proposed for acceptance with the Town Clerk 7 days before Town Meeting votes on that street. They failed to do so. As a result, the meeting had to be continued to the earliest date when both the 7 days has passed and the high school is available. That date is May 19.
