Item 4: 12/1/20 Bartley: Ordered, The City Council and any other city department look into minimizing ‘legal notice advertising costs.’ There are now three newspapers covering Holyoke and each provides legal ads.

Item 5: 12/1/20 Bartley: Ordered, The City Council refer to the Law Department a question asking whether a petitioner to the City Council requiring a public hearing (be it a business, an individual, a public or private corporation, and/or any petitioning entity) is compelled to provide public notice via a newspaper of record or whether the City Council can petition the State Legislature under a Home Rule Petition to waive any state law requiring public notices be placed in a local newspaper so long as the City Council (and any other city department) publicly provides notice on the website of the City of Holyoke. Background: this matter was recently raised because of the issue of costs to the public to comply may be prohibitive.
