    Can you please explain why there is no agenda link to the EG School Building Committee meeting, when it will be held and why there is no public comment at these meetings. I have seen previous agendas?

      Hi. I just posted a link to the agenda – it was posted Monday morning and the calendar was posted Sunday so it was not available when the calendar originally posted. For anyone planning to attend in person, the location is changed – they will be meeting in the library at EGHS.

          Building subcommittee meeting is Wednesday 10:30am in the EGHS library. I’d also urge all interested residents to attend the School Cmte meeting tonight – Tue 6pm at Cole Middle School or via Zoom – as new building discussion will take place by School Committee members
