Remote video technology used for Town Board Meeting

It appears that live streaming of the Mar 25, 2020 Town Board meeting was never a possibility since each councilmember was working remotely. In ordinary times, the town hall has the technology to live stream it’s meetings from the council chambers. The Town Board started to use Zoom Meetings & Chat to record the video of the meeting last night. It is now available via a link on the town website home page

From what I have heard so far from the Town of Amherst, live streaming will not be possible for a while. It is understandable that the difficulties of doing this new way of Town Board meetings became the primary focus.

Our advise to anyone who would like to comment on future town board agenda items, be more proactive by using either the phone, email or the US mail.
