Logging onto a scheduled Zoom meeting:

As a result of the COVID-19 crisis, the Chebeague Island Board of Selectmen has determined to conduct meetings via remote access as provided in law.   For the duration of the current voluntary shelter-in-place restrictions, the Town will be conducting public meetings via Zoom.  It will enable the Town to continue to conduct business while providing the public the ability to view the proceedings and participate as appropriate.

We will use Zoom, an online meeting platform, ensuring that all Board members, and all members of the public, will be able to be heard by all participants.  As required by law, all votes taken at this meeting will be taken by roll call.

In order to participate in the Town’s Board of Selectmen’s meetings you must use a computer.  A smart cell phone may also be used, but the Zoom app must be installed and used.
