November 20, 2020 – The week ahead

With the Thanksgiving holiday, it’s going to be a light week, both for municipal meetings and for posting on this site.

There are two meetings I’ll be keeping an eye on:

  • Monday: Charter Review Committee Meeting – This is the group tasked with recommending updates to Greenfield’s City Charter. They are coming down to the end of their allotted time to generate their report, which is supposed to be delivered to the City Council before the end of the calendar year.
  • Tuesday: School Committee Meeting – Items on the agenda are an update on Phase 2 of the re-opening plan, snow days during remote learning, changing the distract map redrawing subcommittee to an advisory group, and capital requests for the School Department.

I am also most of the way through the draft of a post digging into how citizen petitions work. I’m hoping to get that one done and up ahead of the Charter Review Committee’s meeting on Monday, since they may be getting to Article 7 of the City Charter, which covers such petitions (among other things).
