Open Meeting Law


As of July 1, 2014, Act 143 updated the Open Meeting Law. The Law was updated again in 2016 and 2018. The Vermont Secretary of State and the Vermont League of Cities and Towns have produced information to help meet the new requirements.

*Open Meeting Law Update 6/15/2021*

The temporary measures enacted by the Vermont Legislature and tied to the declared emergency will have expired. Among them are Acts 92 and 113 of 2020, which had temporarily amended the open meeting law (OML) to allow for fully remote public meetings and electronic posting of notices. As of this update, public bodies must now comply with the long-standing OML as it appears in 1 V.S.A. §§ 310-314. This includes providing a staffed physical location where members of the public may attend and participate in public meetings.The Secretary of State's office has issued this memo to local officials to help with the transition.
