The expiration also means the end to board meetings by Zoom for the time being. Until further notice, meetings of the Village Board of Trustees will be held in person at the Old Stone Meeting House and the Planning Board, Zoning Board of Appeals and Architectural Review Boards will meet in person in the meeting room of Village Hall.
