Hi Stan,
 On the town's web site anyone can sign up to be notified about upcoming
meetings and events.  Here are instructions on how to receive emails or
text messages about meetings such as the one you mention:

1. Go to

2. Scroll down to find the Notify Me button - click on it.

3. Enter your email and sign in

4. Select how (email/text/both) and what you would like to be notified

You would specifically want to click on the Agenda Center - Town Council.

I have subscribed to this notification and did indeed get the information
about the meeting.

Hope this is helpful!
