There will be a Public Hearing before a Special Meeting of the Somerville City Council on Wednesday, August 5, at 7 PM. The public hearing will address Tufts University’s re-opening plans, and the public is welcome to attend and be heard.
The Special Meeting has been called by President Matthew McLaughlin for “any and all business,” and will include, among other items, Elections Department matters and US2 community benefits, as well as the public hearing. The meeting agenda will be available online at http://somervillecityma.iqm2.com/Citizens/Default.aspx prior to Monday, August 3, at 7 PM.
Because of Governor Baker’s and Mayor Curtatone’s recent orders limiting the number of people that may gather in one place, the meeting will be conducted via remote participation, online in a webinar hosted on the GoToWebinar platform.
