Local government meetings are an essential part of Norfolk Community Television. We don't dedicate entire channels to things that aren't important! So this blog is going to give you some information about our government meeting coverage.

Firstly, there are many Boards, Committees, and Commissions in the town of Norfolk. It is not possible at this time to cover every single meeting by every single committee, but there are about seven that we do try to cover every time. The following is a list of the Boards and Committees that we cover:

  • Board of Health
  • Board of Selectmen
  • Norfolk School Committee
  • Planning Board
  • Recreation Commission
  • Zoning Board of Appeals
  • And a new and temporary addition to the lineup: Public Safety Building Committee

Also, if you want to follow the King Philip School Committee, you can check Verizon Channel 40 or Comcast Channel 12. That is our education channel that is run by Wrentham Cable Access.

Secondly, if you'd like to be notified about when meetings are being held or get information about what will be on the agenda for said meeting, you can do that! All you have to do is follow these steps:

  1. Go to www.VirtualNorfolk.org
  2. Click on Town Calendar
  3. Click on the 'Boards and Committees' drop down menu
  4. Select your Board or Committee of interest
  5. Click "Subscribe to Email Alerts for this board"

You can also go to www.MyTownGovernment.org to see a schedule of every meeting and you'll have the option to get the details and agenda of that meeting.

Thirdly, many of the meetings we cover are filmed in Room 124 of the Town Hall. This means that we can broadcast those meetings live on our government channel (Verizon ch. 42 or Comcast ch. 22). So if you've signed up to be notified when the meetings are being held, you can check to see if it's being held in Room 124. If it is, you can watch from the comfort of your own living room.

Finally, we must say that we do our best to cover each and every meeting that was listed. However, we're only human and sometimes we don't have the manpower to accomplish that mission. So please understand that if a meeting didn't get filmed, we had a good reason. Thanks for watching and supporting your local government!
