A petition was signed by about 150 residents and presented to Milton’s Board of Selectmen Monday night, July 23, urging the Town to adopt gender neutral language, such as “Select Board,” for Milton’s Board of Selectmen.

The Board of Selectmen first voted to submit the article to the Warrant Committee, after which they rescinded their vote, opting instead to submit the proposal to the Town Government Study Committee for further review.
