With 113 members in attendance, Falmouth Town Meeting did not reach a quorum of 124 members to conduct its business on Monday, November 16.

"Thank you to all Town Meeting members and staff that were present tonight," Moderator David T. Vieira said. "We really appreciate you coming down."  

Mr. Vieira said Falmouth Town Meeting now stands adjourned until Monday, January 25, at 7 PM at the Falmouth High School field house. 

"We will continue to monitor the health situation going forward," he said. "Looking at the trends in the region, we know if we just try to adjourn for a week or a few days, we won't be able to meet the statutory requirements to do a remote meeting, and it would be futile to try to drag everyone back into here as things are not, quote-unquote, heading in the right direction." 

Town Meeting was set to discuss nine articles, including $5.7 million in capital projects and $832,280 in noncapital expenses, six amendments to the Falmouth Town Charter, a transfer of land at the Mullen-Hall School from the school committee to the select board and authorization of a payment in lieu of taxes agreement for a solar array project at the Cape Cod Fairgrounds. 

Town Meeting members can receive an excused absence if they were not comfortable attending Monday's meeting due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
