HB 1129 (2020)

Flexibility for towns responding to coronavirus


Changes the notice requirements for municipal planning and zoning public hearings, allowing notices to be posted on the municipal website instead of in the newspaper. The Senate amended the bill to also give towns greater flexibility in spending due to the coronavirus emergency and allow some virtual town meetings. The Senate amendment also requires the governor to provide an online report of all CARES Act spending in a check register format.
