At our December 1 PTA meeting, we welcomed Susan Clark and Ward Mazzucco from our town’s Board of Finance, as well as Laura Hoeing and Colleen Pilato, both newly elected to Redding’s Board of Education. (You can check out the livestream on our PTA Facebook page here!) Mr. Mazzucco mentioned the many town boards that make up our government, and the various meetings they hold. He also discussed the very real impact all of these boards have on our day to day life here in town. If you’d like to keep closer tabs on what’s going on in town, here’s some ways you can do that!
Our town’s calendar has a regularly updated list of all the board meetings held. It includes the location of meetings, as well as the time. It’s standard practice for most boards to offer a time for public comment. At BOE meetings, for example, public comment is usually welcomed both at the beginning (in case you need to leave to tuck in your kids!) and the end of the meetings (in case you were late because you were busy tucking in your kids!).
You can also check out the agendas for all the meetings in advance, as well as read the minutes from the meetings — both are found on this page, and it updates frequently.
Local newsman Bob Moran has made it part of his mission of public service to livestream most town board meetings. He initially does so via his Facebook page, and it’s frequently shared on Redding 411 and elsewhere. Keep an eye out for these videos, which are then archived on Mr. Moran’s website.
You can get in touch with our volunteer board members by emailing them or attending a meeting. Direct email addresses are available on most of the boards’ pages on the town website; just click on the board or commission that interests you here and email away!
Thanks again to our government officials for joining us on Friday!
