Open Meeting Law training

Between now and November, it is likely that many members of Belmont's committees, boards and commissions and employees will be asked to provide information, data, opinions, “fact sheets” related to the Belmont High School project for residents, ballot campaign question committees, voters, members of the media and press, or just interested parties.  

To aid our volunteers and employees in making choices related to this ballot question, Town Clerk Ellen O'Brien Cushman has arranged a training session to be delivered by the State Office of Campaign & Political Finance (OCPF) personnel.  There will be one session for members of boards, committees and commissions in the early evening; employees will attend a session in the afternoon. 

At the same training session, Town Counsel George Hall  of Anderson & Kreiger, will hold a question and answer session on his recent advisory to Belmont on the Open Meeting Law determination and Supreme Judicial Court decision. 

The training session will be held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, July 17 in Chenery Middle School Auditorium and is expected to take approximately one hour.
