GRAND ISLE – As local and state government boards, commissions and offices get more creative in carrying out their duties during COVID-19, the Grand Isle Selectboard plans to hold its upcoming meetings by computer.
On Monday at 3 p.m. the board plans to make a test room to see if the board and general public can connected through a program known as ”Zoom.”
The practice test is to try to ensure that the regular board meeting on April 6 will go on without a hitch, Selectboard member Rachael Griggs said.
The Vermont legislature last week relaxed a couple of requirements under Vermont’s Open Meeting Law, including that at least one board member must be present at a public meeting site.
The changes are only in effect during the State of Emergency declared by Gov. Phil Scott.
