The week in government: Advisory and BOS on FY21 budget; Town Meeting update

Above: These days, meetings that usually take place in the Town House Hearing Room or other public facilities are being run by video/audio conference calls accessible to the public.

Here is a selection of the committee and board meetings for the week along with my selected highlights from the agendas.

The Town intends to make each of its meetings available for viewing/listening via streaming live (and saved) video and audio on YouTube with some available for public comment by zoom.*

Be aware that changes to the meeting schedule are known to happen throughout the week. For an updated list of meetings, visit the town website.

*There is the caveat that there could be technical glitches that force the Town to take backup actions:

No in-person attendance of members of the public will be permitted, but every effort will be made to ensure that the public can adequately access the proceedings in real time, via technological means. In the event that we are unable to do so, despite best efforts, we will post on Southborough’s website an audio or video recording, transcript, or other comprehensive record of proceedings as soon as possible after the meeting.
