About Meetings

Regular meetings of the township council generally convene on the second and fourth Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. If there is an executive session scheduled, the meeting (closed to the public) will begin at 6:00 p.m. and the regular meeting will follow at 7:00 p.m.

All meetings are held in the court room at the municipal building, located at 21 Church Street in Vernon.

An agenda for each meeting is posted here and made available to the public at meetings. Notice of meeting date changes and/or additional special meetings will also be posted on this website.

All council meetings are open to the public and public participation will be entertained at all council meetings. There will be a limited period of public comment at the beginning of every meeting where speakers will be limited to three minutes. During the first period for public comment, each speaker may speak only on items on the current agenda. The total time for public speaking at the beginning of the meeting is limited to one half hour to provide the governing body sufficient time to complete its work. There will be a second period of public comment at the end of each council meeting. Speakers will be limited to three minutes where the public may speak on any topic.

The public is also given the opportunity to comment on ordinances prior to final adoption.
