Seekonk Town Government Returning to Normal
After months of being shut down due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, town offices are now open to the public again. Town Hall has been modified to be as “secure and user friendly as possible,” Town Administrator Shawn Cadime told selectmen last week. Visitors will be instructed to observe social distancing guidelines. Human Services and the Veterans Agent are serving people by appointment only. Town employees have been encouraged not to leave their workspace unless necessary and not to congregate in large groups so as not to spread Covid-19. Cadime said mail bins have been placed outside of offices which require forms to be signed and dropped off. Face coverings are also required for anyone gathering in common areas, such as the employee break room.
Members of the public are also being allowed to attend selectmen meetings, which are now being held at the Senior Center. Currently, the number of meeting attendees is limited to 10, although chairman Justin Sullivan said that figure could change depending on what is placed on the agenda. Face coverings are required to gain entrance to the building. Anyone who wants to attend is required to pre-register online by going to the town website: www.seekonk-ma.gov.
