INFORMATIONAL HANDOUT FOR REMOTE MEETINGS

Remote Public Meetings

All public body meetings for the [insert name of municipality] will be conducted remotely via electronic means for the duration of Governor Scott’s State of Emergency declaration. Whenever feasible, the public will also be able to access and participate in the remote meetings by dialing in through telephone.

Accessing a Meeting

Please refer to each public body’s notice and agenda for information on how to access a remote meeting. Please note that whether you join by telephone, computer, or device, you may be put on hold or in a waiting “room” until granted access to the meeting. You also may be muted or restricted from using any chat function until the public comment portion of the meeting.

Participation

All meetings will be conducted in accordance with the respective “Rules of Procedure” of each public body, to the extent practicable. The public body will follow its agenda and allow public attendees to participate through voice (audio) means where feasible or alternatively using any chat function during the designated public comment periods on the agenda and at other applicable times as needed.

Initially, the meeting’s host/organizer will mute all participants that are not members of the public body. This is necessary to control background noise. The host/organizer will then unmute participants or allow participants to unmute themselves when invited to speak by the Chair of the public body.

Please review the following guidelines:

  • The Chair will invite comment:
    • during the time designated on the agenda for public comment;
    • after the public body discusses each agenda item;
    • before the public body takes action;
    • during any open public comment period, if applicable; and
    • other times as determined by the public body.
  • When a participant/attendee is unmuted, they must state their name before commenting.

If the public body successfully moves to enter an executive session, the meeting’s host/organizer will then place everyone that is not part of the executive session on hold or a virtual waiting “room.” This will prevent attendees from hearing or participating in the meeting during the duration of the executive session. When the public body exits executive session, the host/organizer will then grant access back to the remote meeting.

When the public body adjourns the meeting, the host/organizer will end the electronic meeting by turning off/closing the remote meeting software. Attendees will be automatically disconnected.

Minutes and other public records that were part of the meeting will be made available in accordance with VT’s Open Meeting and Public Records Laws.

To learn more about Remote Public Meetings and the Open Meeting Law, please visit the Secretary of State’s Municipal Assistance webpage at https://sos.vermont.gov/municipal-division/laws-resources/covid-19-response/.

BROOKFIELD PUBLIC SAFETY ADVISORY COMMITTEE

NOTICE AND AGENDA FOR AN IN-PERSON MEETING

 

The Brookfield Public Safety Advisory Committee will meet in person at the Brookfield Congregational Church on the first floor at 5:30 PM on Wednesday, January 19, 2022.

The space at the church is sufficient for social distancing which is recommended.  Interested members of the public may attend.

The following guidelines that pertain to meetings have been adopted by the Brookfield Select Board on June 15, 2021.

 

–  Masks will no longer be mandatory for vaccinated individuals. If for any reason you are more comfortable wearing a mask, then you are more than welcome to do so.

 

–  Please be advised that by not wearing a mask you are attesting to the fact that you are “fully vaccinated”.

 

–  The term “fully vaccinated” indicates that you have received your second shot of vaccine, or your single dose vaccine, at least 14 days ago.

 

–  All attendees, regardless of vaccination status should continue to monitor their health status and potential symptoms and not attend if they are unwell.

 

–  If you are not “fully vaccinated”, you must continue to practice all safety protocols including wearing a mask in the presence of others and socially distancing.

 

If there are any further recommendations/guidelines from the state or the select board, a notice about this meeting will be posted including Front Porch Forum.  If Covid conditions change and an in-person meeting is not advisable, we will revert to a remote meeting.  If that occurs, you will be informed and the meeting info will be provided.

–  If you have questions regarding the meeting, please email  publicsafety@brookfieldvt.org.
