We're encouraging residents to interact. This will help the town board gather information from residents who can't attend the meetings in person. We want to hear ideas and constructive criticism from our residents. We want to be accessible, and to benefit from the wisdom of our most important resource, our residents. The extra convenience of participating through Livestream will provide residents with an opportunity to share opinions and engage directly with the Town Board.
When will questions be answered?
Community segment at the start of each meeting
This Tuesday, January 14, we will also be introducing a a segment of around five minutes brief five to ten minute community segment at the beginning of the meeting, at 7:45 p.m. In the community segment, we will recognize a business that has opened up or is celebrating a milestone. Some weeks we might have a town staff department head briefly explain the services they provide to the public. Other weeks we might recognize the work of a particular community group.
In the future, we plan to enable residents to sign up to receive emailed meeting agendas, as well as minutes following the meetings.
