How to Post a Public Meeting

The Town Clerk's Office is responsible for posting public meetings.

According to state law, "a public body must provide the public with notice of its meeting 48 hours in advance, excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays."

Therefore, notice of public meetings must be received by the Town Clerk’s Office at least 60 hours before the meeting is to be held, in order to ensure that it is posted in time. If a meeting must be posted on less than 60 hours, please call the Town Clerk's Office at 781-698-4558.

It is the responsibility of all notice submitters to confirm posting on the Town's Public Meeting Calendar at least 48 hours before the meeting.
