Plainfield Town Council establishes virtual meeting policy

By Nicole Davis

The Plainfield Town Council met June 14 for a regular council meeting in-person and via live stream. The council meets at 6 p.m. for a work session and 7 p.m. for a council meeting on the second and fourth Mondays each month, normally at 591 Moon Road. Agendas and meeting minutes can be found at townofplainfield.com. The next meeting is scheduled for June 28.

The council approved a resolution establishing a policy so council members may participate in meetings electronically after the state government’s pandemic resolutions expire.

The resolution states that the governing body may participate in any means of communication that allows participating members to simultaneously communicate with each other except for a meeting that is an executive session. At least half of the members must be present in person, and not more than 50% of the members may participate by any electronic means of communication at that same meeting.
