Virtual Meeting Option for the Public

In an effort toward transparency and community engagement in the meetings of the Georgetown Township Board, a livestream will be available via the Zoom platform, using the links and directions provided below.  Public comment via this platform will be made available at the designated times in our agenda.

Please Note:  While we will do our best to make this experience positive for our community, we anticipate it will not be without technical difficulties.  We ask for patience while we navigate and troubleshoot issues that arise, and invite you to attend our meetings in person if this virtual option does not meet your needs.  

This service is being made available as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, and will be discontinued when health officials determine that the risk of community spread of the virus decreases for our demographics.
