The picture of the Amherst Town Hall is now just a symbol of how Town Board meetings used to be held before the COVID-19 related Executive Orders prevented actual physical public hearing there. This is the new reality we all have to deal with now. The solution presented Town government has selected is to use Zoom Remote Video conferencing.

This new way of holding public hearings is most definitely INFERIOR to actually being able to be physically present at Town Hall for Town Board meetings, but it is now the only way we have left to express our points of view. Use it until we can return to the preferred method of  face to face interactions!

What public hearings/resolutions should you give a little extra attention to at this meeting?

  1. Public Hearing #2: Resolution 2020-298 Local Law Amending Chapter 19, Code of Ethics
  2. Public Hearing #3: Resolution 2020-765  Boulevard Central District Rezoning
  3. Resolutions from the Town Supervisor, the Town Attorney, and the Planning Department are usually the most significant, but the two public hearings in 1 and 2 are the most important.
