This morning, we’re excited to launch our new video series, “Wilton 101,” meant to help new residents and long-timers alike. Each video will feature one topic about Wilton and explain, introduce or reveal what you need to know in a really quick, easy-to-digest way. Today’s video is all about how Wilton sets its budget every year — and what that means for you and your taxes, and how you can have a direct say in what happens.
In the coming weeks, you’ll learn about Wilton’s Master Plan; the traditions around how Wilton celebrates July 4th and Memorial Day; what goes on behind the scenes in the Village Market kitchens and what are the hometown favorite specialties; and more.
We’d love your input! If there’s something you’d like to learn more about or something you think we should feature, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
