Attorney Lauren F. Goldberg presented a webinar to the MMA membership on so-called “First Amendment Audits” on January 10th. 

With over 1,000 municipal officials and employees from across the state participating, the discussion included analysis of the legal issues governing the use of public spaces for first amendment purposes.  Just as importantly, the discussion also included consideration of the practical implications of such “auditors”, including use of office space, identifying “public” and “private” areas in municipal buildings, public records issues, employee safety, being prepared with a departmental and overall response plan, signage, employee support and more.
