Important Announcement Regarding the 6/1/2020 Board of Aldermen Special Meeting

In an effort to adhere to social distancing guidelines, and promote the safety of our residents, Monday’s upcoming Board of Aldermen special meeting for the purpose of considering and acting on the Mayor’s Proposed 2020-2021 Operating and Capital Budgets will be held without normal in-person public access. This decision came after Mayor O’Leary ordered the partial closing of Waterbury City Hall, the Chase Municipal Building, and the Jefferson Square Office Building effective Monday, March 23rd in response to the coronavirus.

To ensure that the general public has the ability to view Monday’s Board of Aldermen special meeting, it will be broadcasted live, beginning at 7 pm, on the City of Waterbury’s Government Access Channel (Comcast Channel 96; Frontier Channel 6096). There is no public speaking on Monday’s special meeting agenda, as public hearings related to the Mayor’s Proposed 2020-2021 Operating and Capital Budgets were held on April 20, 2020 and May 26, 2020.
