How to Participate in Town Halls

You can watch County Executive Marc Molinaro's Town Halls LIVE on Dutchess County Government’s Facebook page.

All Town Halls are streamed live on Facebook with most having American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters from Mid-Hudson Interpreter Service on screen to sign the questions and answers. If interpreters are not available, live closed captions are available to viewers by clicking "settings" and turning "ON" auto-generated captions in the live video.

If you do not have a Facebook account, you can watch the archived recording on the County's YouTube page.
