Town chairperson hopes to return to in-person meetings

Liberty Grove Town Chairperson John Lowry hopes its board will be able to conduct its business in person as soon as it is safe. The town recently approved a resolution to extend its allowance of supervisors and committee members to appear via telephone or other electronic devices if they are not able to appear in person. In-person or not, the appearance does count towards the minimum quorum requirement. It has been especially important during the pandemic as most of the meetings have either had limited in-person attendance or 100 percent virtual. Lowry says it is not a perfect system, especially considering the Internet issues the area has and the impact it has on participation.

Depending on the roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccine, Lowry hopes in-person meetings could return in the late summer to early fall.
