Town Board Workshop Agenda - Monday, January 13, 2020

Below is the Town Board Workshop Agenda for Monday, January 13. The Town Board Meeting Agenda for Wednesday will be posted on Monday.

Town Board workshops are always held the Monday before the Town Board Meeting (occasionally Tuesday if a Town Holiday falls on a Monday). Often, residents may only see the Town Board meetings where the Board votes on the listed Agenda items, which is held in the courtroom on the first Wednesday of the month.

The Town Board workshops are where the Supervisor and board members discuss the issues that will be voted on at the Town Board meeting, as well as other ongoing Town issues. The workshop meetings are always open to the public, and held at 7pm in the Supervisor’s conference room at Town Hall.

As part of Supervisor Meyers new Open Government policy, the workshop agendas will be posted ahead of time and shared on social media in addition to the regular Town Board Agendas. The public is encouraged to attend a workshop if there is an issue being discussed that they have an interest in.
