Zoom Teleconferencing Tool

remote participation for City meetings

During this unprecedented time the City is making every effort to maintain essential services, including public business. To facilitate this we have implemented the Zoom teleconferencing tool. Zoom connection information will be posted consistent with Governor Baker's recent executive order.
