Plymouth Township postpones council meeting after failing to post agenda on website as required by law

0

Every Sunday evening, we review all the public meetings scheduled for the week so that we can prepare for them. This Sunday we saw that a meeting of Plymouth Township Council was scheduled for Monday July 11, but no agenda had been posted on the township’s website, as required by an update. Pennsylvania Sunshine Act Day 2021. The law now requires that the agenda be posted 24 hours before the start of the meeting.

When we noticed the problem on Sunday evening, we emailed board members and asked if they were planning on rescheduling the meeting. We did not receive a response (typical of Plymouth council).

This afternoon, the township issued a notice from the township manager stating that the meeting and a hearing were postponed due to a problem with the agenda. Below is the text of the review:

The hearing and meeting originally scheduled for this evening at 6 p.m. have been moved to Monday August 1 at 7 p.m.

Tonight’s regular council meeting will be called and immediately continued until Wednesday, July 13 at 7:00 p.m. There will be no voting, discussion or action tonight, July 11.

These changes were necessitated by an unintentional omission in the agenda posting process. I deeply regret any inconvenience.

This is at least the third time that an investigation by MoreThanTheCurve.com regarding unposted agendas resulted in meetings being postponed. The other two were in the Borough of Conshohocken and the Borough of Ambler.
