All registered voters in Abington are invited to attend. On the advice of the Abington Health Department, social distancing and the wearing of face masks are strongly recommended at these public meetings.

Town Meeting will be held on April 3, 2023 at 7:00 p.m. at the Abington High School/ Middle School Auditorium.


A Town Meeting is both an event and an entity. As an event, it is a gathering of a town’s eligible voters, and is referred to as “the Town Meeting.” As an entity, it is the legislative body for towns in Massachusetts, and is referred to simply as “Town Meeting.”

Town Meeting decides three major things:

  • It sets the salaries for the elected officials.
  • It votes to appropriate money to run the town.
  • It votes on the town’s local statutes, which are called by-laws.

Each town must hold an annual Town Meeting. Additional Town Meetings are called special meetings. They may be called as many times during the year, as necessary.
