Agendas & Minutes
2017 - Current
The Town of East Greenwich has begun to use Novus Agenda for the Town Council meeting management, agendas, backup and minutes. Eventually all Town boards and commissions will be using this tool and this Agenda and Meeting page will be reformatted.
View the Novus Agenda Public Portal with 2017 Town Council meetings listed by date.
To access an agenda and the related backup material you have the ability to select the online version or to open the agenda and backup as a PDF.
The online version presents you with hyperlinks to each item and the related backup. When the minutes for a Town Council meeting are approved by the Council they will be available from this same page by the particular date in the last column on the page as a PDF. There are multiple tabs available which allows you to look at Meetings or Items. Additionally, you can search for particular text and any meeting or item containing that text will be displayed.
Agendas are available prior to the meetings. Minutes are available following approval.

Town Government Format
The voters of the Town of East Greenwich, through a "Home Rule Charter" approved in 1972, adopted a Council/Manager form of government. This provides a 5 member legislative body with a professional administrator. The legislative body is styled after the traditional New England form of government with a 5 member Town Council elected at large for 2 year terms. The Town Manager is chosen by the Town Council and serves at their discretion. The Town Manager is charged with the administrative responsibility of the Town Government.
Rules and Guidelines are to be reviewed biennially on the first Town Council meeting in the February following a general election.
