Thank you for your patience and understanding. The Town of Egremont is committed to transparency and will make every effort to provide real-time coverage for residents.
To Town Officials & Town Residents
The Selectboard is very aware of the difficulties we all encounter in hosting Town Board/Committee meetings via Zoom. One such issue that has arisen as a concern is public participants who are not using video and not identifying themselves. The Open Meeting Law requires minutes of meetings to include those in attendance. The Selectboard discussed this issue at its meeting on September 22, 2021, and voted to encourage all attendees to use video; if a person's technology does not allow for video, they will be asked to identify themselves. All Boards/Committees must have someone in charge of identifying those without video. All attendees who speak must identify themselves before speaking.
Thank you for your cooperation. Here is hoping that we can return to in-person meetings soon.
