From the Executive Director

As of this time, our Federal, State and Local Governments are in the midst of uncertainty due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19 Pandemic)
All public bodies across the State are taking action to curb the spread of Covid-19.
With regards to Township Government the only official Executive direction from the Office of the Governor (Executive Order 2020-07) encourages public bodies to postpone public business when possible. This Document is a summary of Executive Order 2020-07 as it relates to the Open Meetings Act and the Freedom of Information Act that all townships must abide by.
While this situation is unprecedented it continues to be very fluid and changing by the minute. TOI has been working with legislative leaders and the Governor’s Office to find a solution to the Annual Meeting issue. Any updates regarding the Annual Town Meeting and your ability to cancel or postpone it will be provided on the TOI website and Facebook Page.
Again, this is an unprecedented event and things are changing by the moment. Please stay safe and we will keep you posted as we are made aware of any developments.

Message from the Executive Director 3/23/2020 regarding Shelter-in-Place Directive

As of March 17. 2020, the only official change to meeting participation and scheduling is executive order 2020-07 addressing the ability for township boards to participate (board members) by electronic capabilities.  

This does not impact the Annual Town Meeting for anyone other than the Clerk as they are the only elected official acting in an official capacity to start the meeting.  Therefore, as of 3/17/2020, it is our understanding that the Annual Town Meeting is to be held as scheduled per statutory requirement.

Please watch the TOI website for updates as they become available. TOI is monitoring the issuance of future executive orders and interpretations of the upcoming Annual Town Meeting and will pass the information on to our members as soon as possible.
