The Select Board will be holding a remote meeting where all participants are connected via webcam and voice chat on Monday 3/30/2020 at 7:00PM. This will be our first attempt at sharing the meeting with the public to participate in.
To Join the meeting go to https://zoom.us/j/993020274
The meeting will be conducted utilizing the software ‘Zoom’. This meeting will be conducted in a Webinar format. Computer/tablet/phone users can join the meeting in the Zoom software as a participant and choose to allow video/voice chat features. Video and microphone (for voice) will be disabled for all public participants until you indicate in the software that you wish to address the meeting by using the ‘Raise Hand’ feature at the bottom of the Webinar window. At an appropriate time, the Town Manager will grant you access to speak in the webinar. Your microphone feature must be enabled at that time to be heard (you optionally can enable your webcam video for that period also). After you are done speaking the Town Manager will again set you to be a viewer only and disable your webcam/microphone from broadcasting. Participants also have the option of typing a question in the comments or using the Q&A feature to ask a question if they feel more comfortable asking that way.
This will be our first time attempting this. We fully expect to have some slight issues with remote participants. If you have a comment/question during the meeting and are experiencing issues getting it to work properly please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your comments and the Town Manager will attempt to relay them during the meeting.
Please note: The Select Board will not be in a position to help the public troubleshoot their computers or other devices. If you plan to participate in the meeting we recommend you install the software before hand and be sure any audio/video equipment you plan to use is working before hand (microphones, speakers/headphones, webcam, etc.).
People wishing to just watch the meeting can do so through the zoom app or watch on The Groton Channel who will be broadcasting it on their government channel (Channel 41 on FIOS / 192 on Charter).
