Open Meeting Law

Effective July 1, 2010, the Division of Open Government, a subsidiary of the Attorney General's Office, became the governing body responsible for ensuring that all government meetings are done openly to the public.

Important things to note:

  • Meeting postings must include the time, location and items expected to be discussed (agenda).
  • Meetings must be posted with the Office of the Town Clerk within 48 hours of the meeting time. The 48 hour time frame does not include Saturdays, Sundays or other legal holidays where Town Hall is closed.

All board, committee and commission members receive Open Meeting Law materials when being sworn into office.  To access those materials or to get more information on Open Meeting Law, click on the links below:
