Discussion to reschedule the Finance Committee’s June 19, 2024 meeting date.






Juneteenth: Independence Day, Freedom Day “The Emancipation Proclamation” was signed by President Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863.


In 2021 President Joe Biden signed a bill passed by Congress to set aside Juneteenth, or June 19th, as a federal holiday. 


On May 27, 2022 Governor Ned Lamont signed into law Public Act 22-128 <>, which established a new legal state holiday on June 19 known as Juneteenth Independence Day, which was scheduled to  be legally recognized in 2023.


With Connecticut being a state declaring  Juneteenth as a state holiday, State and Municipal Employees have the day off.  Because Town Offices will be closed for the Federal Holiday Committees cannot meet; and therefore, the meeting will need to be rescheduled.
