This new portal allows residents to sign up for email notifications for regular and special public council meetings,  to review council meeting agendas, minutes and the full council meeting package that Hearst Town Council review prior to their meetings.

The portal will develop further over time as more resources are added online. Residents are encouraged to access the portal by clicking on the icon above.
