Starting Monday November 23rd, Town Hall, Planning and Zoning and the Visitors’ Center will be closed to the public. Meetings of the Mayor and Council will also be closed to the public. Meetings will be streamed live on Facebook until arrangements can be made for the Mayor and Council to meet entirely online.
