There, residents can find the agendas, minutes and meeting calendars of over thirty of the Town’s Boards and Commissions. Frequency of meetings vary from Board to Board, and some meet “as needed” such as Civilian Police Review Board and Fair Rent.
Residents are welcome to attend any of the Board and Commission meetings to learn more.
