The week in government: Regional School Committee, Conservation and more

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 is currently experiencing a technical issue with the website. I’m told the temporary issue is due to the Town’s vendor performing a datacenter migration. The Town’s IT Director is (and has been) working to resolve it.

You can still access the website for meeting info and agendas. But first, you’ll likely have to override a warning from your internet browser that the website isn’t private. (It may even indicate that it could be an impersonator.) To make it easier to access agendas, links below are to agendas I uploaded my site so you can avoid the issue.

Still, as always. . . 

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

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.*

*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.
