Posted Meetings Notices- Misc. Information

Public Meeting

The Town Clerk's office is responsible for posting meeting notices for all governmental bodies, including ad hoc and sub committees, at least 48 hours prior to the meeting. This DOES NOT include Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays.  The one exception is an "Emergency Meeting", which is a sudden, generally unexpected occurrence or set of circumstances demanding immediate action.

OFFICIAL MEETING POSTINGS - TOWN WEBSITE:  Effective January 1, 2019, the official meeting postings for public bodies is the Town of Lakeville's website (www.lakevillema.org).  Our municipal website fulfills the meeting notice requirements of the Open Meeting Law.   Original copies of meeting postings will be maintained in a binder in the Town Clerk's Office available for public view during office hours.  Use of the bulletin board outside the Town Hall will be discontinued for public meeting postings.


ATTENTION:  If you are submitting a meeting posting, please note that the following applies to the meeting:  Minutes of all open and executive sessions shall be and approved in a timely manner.  A "timely manner" will be generally be considered to be within the next three (3) public body meetings or within 30 days, whichever is later, unless the public body can show good cause for further delay.  The minutes of an open session, if they exist and whether approved or in draft form, shall be available upon request by any person within "10 days".  MGL c30A,s22(c),(G2).
