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:

October 21 at 7:00 PM - Danvers Affordable Housing Trust

October  22 at 7:00 PM - Conservation Commission 

October 26 at 7:30 PM - Special Town Meeting

October 27 at 8:30 AM - Municipal Light Board

October 27 at 7:00 PM - Planning Board

The Order, which you can find 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: [email protected] 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.
