Open Meeting Law Changes effective July 1, 2014:

The legislature significantly amended Vermontís Open Meeting Law this year. Changes include new requirements for posting meetings, creating and altering agendas, posting minutes onto a municipal website, and for entering into executive session.

VLCT: "Preparing your municipalityís website, if there is one, so that you will be ready to post agendas before meetings (see #10 in the 2014 Open Meeting Law FAQs) and minutes five days after those meetings occur (see #14 in the 2014 Open Meeting Law FAQs). Otherwise, you should de-activate the website to avoid violating this requirement."

The Board reviewed the information and declared the Benson Town Website will be deactivated until further notice.
