1 As of yesterday, public meetings reverted back to pre-pandemic rules and must be held in-person, as as per the state’s Open Meeting Law.

In Framingham, there is a remote participation policy allowed, but the chair of the board/committee and a quorum must be in person, and some members may meet remotely.

But last night, the Massachusetts Senate and House of Representatives reached a tentative compromise bill to extend remote meetings, but it still needs the Goivernor’s signature to become law.

So as of today, all meetings in Framingham still must be in person. For that reason several meetings have been called including the MetroWest Commission on the Status of Women.

2. CITY of FRAMINGHAM MEETINGS:

  • Framingham EDIC meeting at 7 p.m.
