A Town Board meeting with no members at town hall

The Town of Tonawanda is taking a radical step to limit the spread of Covid-19.

Monday's Town Board meeting will take place without any Town Board members in the meeting room.

Instead, Supervisor Joseph Emminger, the four other members of the Town Board and other town officials will log in remotely from their homes.

The only person in the meeting room at the Kenmore-Town of Tonawanda Municipal Building on Delaware Avenue will be there to run the live-streaming technology, Emminger said.

The town's previously issued state of emergency had stated Town Board meetings would continue but with online access only and without an audience, steps other communities also have taken.

This goes one step further. Councilman Bill Conrad on Twitter urged anyone with questions about Monday's agenda to email town officials.
