AGENDA

*******************************************************************************************************************************
The COVID-19 Pandemic has created challenges for everyone. We all have a responsibility to slow "community spread" of the virus. Therefore, there will be no public gathering in Town Hall for this meeting. This raises another challenge: how do we hold the public hearings on the agenda remotely? We continue to use the "Zoom" platform. If you want to watch the meeting, you may do so via the Town's Web site or via cable TV as usual as mentioned below. However, if you wish to register to speak at the meeting using Zoom, we have worked out the details. (You may create your own Zoom account if you don't have one for free at https://zoom.us/freesignup/.) Please email PublicHearing@GreenburghNY.com if you want to speak or provide a written comment (up to five minutes) related to a Public Hearing topic. State which hearing(s) in the email. Email PublicComment@GreenburghNY.com if you want to speak or provide written comment (up to three minutes) during Public Comment. If you have a statement you want read, please include the statement with your email.   For Zoom participation, we will contact you with further instructions. - Councilman Francis Sheehan (on behalf of the Zoom technical team)
