Governor Hochul recently ordered a change to the Open Meeting Laws and returned to the orders that were in effect under then Governor Cuomo's executive order. As was stated in her order…
The legislation, which was initially implemented by Executive Order during last year's State of Emergency allows state and local government meetings that are normally held in person to be held remotely instead, as long as the public has the ability to view or listen to the meeting and as long as the meeting is recorded and later transcribed. This statutory change will reduce the need for congregation at public meetings while the Delta variant is prevalent, while ensuring public business can continue.
Therefore, the town will once again adhere to this change and monthly town board meetings as well as zoning and planning meetings will be broadcast via Facebook live.
Currently this order extends through January 15th. We will certainly keep you apprised of any changes.
We will as always continue to welcome input from our residents via email through the town's website or by calling 225-2000.
