Vermont Library Law
Open Meeting Law update, January 25, 2023
The Governor signed Act 1 (H.42) into law on January 25, 2023, once again temporarily amending Vermont’s open meeting law in response to COVID-19.
Under Act 1, public bodies are authorized until July 1, 2024 to hold fully remote public meetings. Public bodies holding fully remote meetings must use technology that permits attendance of the public, must allow access by telephone, and must post and include in each meeting agenda info that enables direct access and participation.
Every municipality should be in touch with its own municipal counsel for legal advice about how to handle specific situations.
