Municipal Assistance COVID-19 Response

Due to temporary changes made to Vermont’s Open Meeting Law passed by the Legislature (H.681), and signed into law by the Governor on March 30th, we have issued a memo to Town Clerks and municipal officials providing guidance as it relates to the changes made to the law.

Changes include the waiving of the Open Meeting Law’s physical location requirement during the COVID-19 health emergency, alongside other provisions aimed towards ensuring public accessibility, to enable critical government functions to occur without increasing exposure for officials, staff, and the public.
