A Message from Legislative Council President McGarry

During this unprecedented public health crisis, Hamden’s Legislative Council meetings, and Budget Deliberations, will take place electronically, via a program called Zoom.

Governor Lamont and Mayor Leng have instituted several Executive Orders and Emergency Protocols to limit public gatherings, yet still provide for public participation in state and local municipal meetings. Our Town Attorneys and Counsel to the Legislative Council have worked hard this past week to ensure that the Legislative Council Practices adhere to the requirements of the Governor’s Executive Orders and our Town Charter.

We all wish to keep our friends and neighbors health and safe, so we thank you for your patience in dealing with these changes in our practices and procedures.

Please use these guidelines to view and participate in Legislative Council meetings:

Members of the public should use the link above in order to access the Special Meeting of the Hamden Legislative Council for Tuesday, April 14th at 7:00 P.M. and each subsequent date, as set forth, above.

Meetings may be accessed through a computer, smartphone, phone, or tablet.

Meetings will also be live streamed on the Legislative Council Facebook page.  People wishing to view the meeting may do by viewing on the Facebook page or using Zoom to access the meeting.
