Public Notice - Open Meeting Law Order

On Thursday, March 12, 2020, Governor Charlie Baker issued an executive order regarding suspending certain provisions of the open meeting law M.G.L. c. 30A, § 20. As a result of this executive order, all government boards in Massachusetts may now meet without a physical quorum of members present and without public access to the physical meeting locations.

In order to ensure the continuation of active public engagement, the City of Worcester will now use a phone conference line for members of the public to participate in all public meetings.

To participate during the public participation phase of City Council, Sub-Committees and Boards and Commissions you may call the direct lines indicated:

  • Esther Howland Chamber - 415-655-0001 (Access Code: 735751404)
  • Levi Lincoln Chamber - 415-655-0001 (Access Code: 730323290)

The City of Worcester will also allow residents to live stream all public meetings via Facebook Live, the City of Worcester website and the Local Government Channel.

Filing a Claim

The liability of the city is set and limited by state law. Generally, the city is liable only for specific acts of negligence in responding to dangerous conditions, not for the dangerous conditions themselves. For example, the city is liable if it does not repair a pothole within a reasonable time after discovering it - the city is not responsible for keeping the streets free of potholes. The law also imposes strict requirements for filing claims. Claims involving streets (potholes, etc) must be filed with 30 days of the incident. If you believe you meet the legal criteria for a claim against the city, you should file a claim against the city.

To file a claim for injury or property damages against the City of Worcester, you must print out the Claim Form, fill it out, sign it and return it to the City Clerk's Office.
