Tyngsborough to Return to In-Person Public Meetings

Tyngsborough, Massachusetts – Town Administrator Matthew Hanson announced Wednesday that most Boards & Committees would return to in-person meetings. This decision is in response to the continued downward trends in positive cases and hospitalizations, the increase in the number of vaccinated residents, and in accordance with relevant public health guidance and regulations.

The Board of Selectmen, Finance Committee, Sewer Commission, Board of Library Trustees, and Board of Assessors have already been meeting in person since early March. Tuesday, the Conservation Commission returned to in-person meetings. In the coming weeks, the Planning Board, Zoning Board of Appeals, Board of Health, Sustainability Committee, and Commission on Disability will also return to in-person meetings. These returns will be staggered to accommodate hearings that were previously advertised as remote. All meetings will be in person by July 1.

All meeting attendees will be required to wear a face covering at all times, and social distancing will be followed. Residents should confirm the location of the meeting by looking at the meeting agenda posted on the window at Town Hall and online at www.tyngsboroughma.gov.

Tyngsborough TV will continue to broadcast meetings live on local access channels and online by visiting www.tyngsboroughma.gov. Residents who wish to provide input to a public meeting but do not wish to attend in person may do so in writing by mail or email.

The 2021 Annual Town Meeting will be conducted outdoors with face coverings and social distancing required. Pre-Town Meeting will take place in person at the Old Town Hall. Face coverings and social distancing will be required.

This decision is subject to change should the public health data begin moving in the wrong direction.
