COVID-19: All meetings by Zoom

Virtual meetings per Executive Orders 202.1 and 202.15.

“Zoom waiting rooms” are not allowed under Open Meetings Law. This area of law along with the Executive Orders is helpfully discussed in a Webinar held by the New York State Department of State in early 2020 and made available as a YouTube video.

A New York State Department of State Committee on Open Government attorney, in OML AO#5633, concludes electronic meetings are required whenever safety of the public may be at issue.

Town Board meetings are for the board to discuss issues and make decisions. The board strives to complete the meetings in 60 to 90 minutes. The meetings are public and the board has chosen to allow public comments. Resident comments are limited to 3 minutes. All comments are to be respectful and civil. Anyone who shouts or uses profanity will be expelled. Residents with personal issues or related to their property should work with the appropriate department head first. If the department head doesn’t resolve the issue, it should be taken to the town Supervisor. Only after those two steps should the issue be raised in a board meeting if needed. The board appreciates your support in keeping meetings timely, civil and productive. Thank you.
