*In normal days, some of Southborough Access Media broadcasts some meetings live and/or delayed via cable and YouTube. Stay tuned to find out when they will be able to resume that function. In the meantime, if a meeting agenda doesn’t note a virtual means of watching, best presume there won’t be one.

**For meetings that offer remote/virtual interaction, The Town has a dedicated zoom account. To find those details, click here.

***For school committee meetings — Agendas for remote meetings include links to zoom webinars for pre-registration. Northborough Cable Access Television is responsible for the cable access for school committee meetings that take place in-person at Algonquin. Webinars and in-person meetings should eventually available via Verizon-29 and Charter-194, NCAT’s VOD player, and their YouTube channel.
