Mayor Thomas McGee and the Lynn Police Department are pleased to announce a Tele Town Hall on Tuesday, April 6th at 6:00pm on the Police Body Worn Cameras program which will be launched by the end of April.

An agreement was reached in December between Mayor McGee and the Lynn Police Association as a direct result of months of dialogue between the city and the Lynn Racial Justice Coalition regarding the need for more transparency and accountability for interactions between the residents of the community and police. This tele town hall came at the request of the Lynn Racial Justice Coalition in order to better educate the public on the purpose and use of the body cameras before the program officially begins.

CDC eviction moratorium
extended through June 30th

CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky has signed an extension to the eviction moratorium further preventing the eviction of tenants who are unable to make rental payments. The moratorium that was scheduled to expire on March 31, 2021 is now extended through June 30, 2021.
