School Building Committee Communications

The School Building Committee is an special body appointed by the Town Council and  is required to follow open meeting laws as prescribed under RIGL 42-46.  All meeting agendas are posted a minimum of forty-eight (48) hours in advance and meetings are always held in an open forum.  The committee is not allowed to discuss relevant SBC topics with each other through e-mail. Communications from members may be sent to the SBC Chair who then provides the member communication to the committee with any received communications from the public.  Members may then respond to the comments at the next appropriately posted public meeting, but may not respond to comments through e-mail or other means.
