Wed, 07/25/2018 - 16:45

Based upon concerns expressed by speakers during the public comment period at the July 24, 2018 Regular Meeting, Winchester Common Council has directed the City Manager to work with City staff to revisit the City’s existing review and evaluation process for the appointment and reappointment of members to the City's various boards and commissions, including the Winchester Public Schools Board. It is the expectation of the Common Council that all Council-appointed boards and commissions follow all applicable laws in the execution of their duties. 

In addition, Council has directed the City Manager to issue the attached letter. Council is exploring what resources and education can be provided to the public to assist with regard to any persons who have encountered violence or harassment in our city.
