(last updated 5/26/20)

From what you have shared with us on MMLA’s ListServ we have been able to identify and publicize information important to public sector attorneys and their municipal clients during this COVID-19 pandemic.  MMLA thanks all who have contributed to this effort.  Listed below are the contributions (through 5/26/20) from MMLA members and those joining us on our weekly open conference calls relating to COVID-19. We hope this has been a useful resource to all.

Message from the Chief Justices:  A important message from the Chief Justices yesterday concluded with their praise and gratitude to court personnel, the bar, and the public for the patience shown and the progress made during these difficult times.  (Source:  BBO on behalf of the SJC  – 5.15.20) The Justices’ message concluded:

 “We recognize that the road we have traveled together in the last few months has often been rocky and at times riddled with unexpected potholes. But we also recognize that, if one had asked in February of this year whether we would be able in two months to transform our court system from one that almost invariably required in-person appearance to one that was almost invariably virtual, few would have imagined that it was possible or that we would be as far along as we are. The success we have achieved is the result of the remarkable dedication, imagination, resilience, and hard work of our judges, clerks, IT specialists, probation officers, facilities staff, and other court employees, aided by the equally remarkable advice, cooperation, and improvisations of the bar. In the coming months, we will need all of that, and more because, as challenging as it has been to close our courthouses, it will be even more challenging to reopen them. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all that you have done, and will continue to do, as we not only keep the wheels of justice spinning but also work to create a better spinning wheel.”  – Click here for full message.

We bring to your attention a recent presentation that is available for MMLA members to watch online. Or you could ask some or all the speakers to repackage it (shorter) for an MMLA phone call. An online webinar April 22 for the Boston Bar Association (BBA) covered the COVID-19 rule changes which have impacted municipal land use and especially Conservation Commission and DEP wetland permitting, procedures, processes, timelines, and appeals. Speakers were Nathaniel Stevens, Esq. and Olympia Bowker, Esq. of McGregor & Legere, Amy Kwessell, Esq, of K-P Law, David Bragg, Senior Counsel at DEP, and Stephanie Moura, Director of DEP’s Wetlands and Waterways Division.  Attendees got an outline of all the provisions of the Municipal Relief Act, SJC Orders, and Governor’s Executive Orders, with citations and footnotes (ask us for it). The slide show hits the highlights of those statutes and orders with practical advice on filing wetland project applications, paying fees, conducting hearings, making decisions, signing them, issuing them recording them, and filing appeals of them to DEP or Court. To watch the seminar webcast, click here.
