Did You Know….

By Maine law, meetings of town boards and committees are open to the public. The only exception in the law is an allowance for executive (closed) sessions to discuss specific topics under specific conditions.

Whether and when audience members are allowed to participate in discussion is up to the board or committee chairman. In China, board and committee meetings held in the town office meeting room are streamed live and preserved on the town website for later viewing. To observe a live or recorded meeting, go to china.govoffice.com, click on Live Stream on the left side of the page, when Live Stream opens, click again on Live Stream where live events (if any), upcoming events and past events are listed.
