PLYMOUTH – The town has resumed in-person meetings, with residents who are vaccinated allowed to come to town hall mask-free.
Mayor David Merchant said that it “feels good” to be getting back to conducting town meetings in person. However, he said he is also glad that he did not rush into reopening before it was appropriate to do so, pointing out that there were big covid spikes in November and December.
“Zoom meetings got us through a difficult time,” he said. “The Town Council has a new desk, created by high school students, and we also had a new wireless microphone system put in over the last year.”
When residents come to town hall, they will see a sign on the door stating that if they are unvaccinated they should wear a mask. However, masks are no longer required for those who are vaccinated.
Town Councilor Dan Gentile said he has been pushing for a few months to bring back in-person meetings.
“It’s a good thing; it allows everyone to get to the meetings,” he said. “I’m happy to be back in person; it’s time to move forward, get back to normal and put this behind us.”
