Written copies of the draft law will be available at the Town Clerk's office Thursday morning, and in the bright green Town Notebooks located in Brookton's Market, Dandy Mini Mart, Speedsville Store and the Caroline Public Library by 3pm Thursday afternoon.
- At the Wed board meeting the Town Board will schedule a public information session to discuss the draft proposed moratorium local law and receive feedback. The date of the public information session will also be announced via website, listserv, Town Notebooks. You can attend the public information session to get your questions answered and/or to provide feedback. You can also send your questions and/or comments to the Town Clerk email@example.com
- Following the public information session, and based on feedback about the contents of the proposed law, a revised version of the local law may be developed and additional public meetings held to receive feedback.

All meetings pertaining to this proposed law will be announced on the Town of Caroline website, via email, in Town Notebooks and information can also be obtained from the Town Clerk.
