Public Notice: Virtual Council Meetings During COVID-19
March 24th, 2020
By order of the province, municipalities are required to hold all meetings virtually and not in person. As part of the order, virtual meetings must be recorded and the minutes posted online within 24 hours. The Town of Yarmouth has already enacted a plan to hold virtual council meetings through a "Webinar" format. This will ensure our residents can stay informed and up to date on council business during this challenging time.
Please note: these meetings will not be streamed live. After each meeting, we will post the video and minutes online for easy access.
Meeting agendas and minutes can be found at the usual place on our website: https://www.townofyarmouth.ca/agenda-and-minutes.html
