Board & Committee Meetings During COVID-19 Emergency

In order to mitigate the transmission of the COVID-19 Virus, the Town has been advised and directed by the Commonwealth to suspend public gatherings, and as such, the Governor’s Order suspends the requirement of the Open Meeting Law to have all meetings in a publicly accessible physical location. Further, all members of public bodies are allowed and encouraged to participate remotely.  Remote meetings can be viewed by tuning into your government access channel on your home TV (channel 22 - Comcast; channel 41 - Verizon) and online here.

The Order, which you can find posted with agenda materials and here, allows public bodies to meet entirely remotely so long as reasonable public access is afforded so that the public can follow along with the deliberations of the meeting.

Supporting materials for the meeting is posted with the event details (located below, click meeting name to view material).

Public Comment During Meetings

Ensuring public access does not ensure public participation unless such participation is required by law.  Various meetings and agenda items will or will not allow comment.  To make public comment during a meeting the public should email: publiccomments@danversma.gov and include the Board or Committee Name and date of the meeting in the subject line [ex. BOS - 3/24/2020].  Additionally, the email must include your name and address in the email.  Any emails without this information will not be read.
