To the editor:

Regarding the Executive Order (202.1) [www.governor.ny.gov/news/no-2021-continuing-temporary-suspension-and-modification-laws-relating-disaster-emergency] signed by Governor Cuomo in late June of 2021, why is the Tusten town board discontinuing remote digital meetings via ZOOM?

Nowhere in the Order does it state that public meetings via telephonic methods cannot continue to be available as a service by the town in conjunction to the regularly scheduled live town board meetings.

It would seem to me that after sixteen months of holding remote meetings via ZOOM, the technology exists and it has been used with success.

In addition, this technology has become a benefit for all residents who cannot physically attend a town board meeting due to physical disabilities, time constraints and many other reasons.

The best government is open, transparent and available for all those residents that wish to either observe, be informed or participate in the affairs of their town.
