Susan Coe Brown started with the goal of 14 days, "which then seemed like A LOT, and daily posted my drawings on Facebook, warts and all. Friends asked how long I was going to keep it up. I may have said, flippantly, 'until this is over'” But as the news became more dire, somewhere along the line 100 seemed like a reasonable goal. Not to mention a huge challenge for me."

The town's July 28, 2020, virtual council meeting was interrupted several times as councilors, staff, or the mayor, were blocked from transmitting or hearing, had trouble understanding what others were saying, or whose comments were inaudible and unclear.

Council approved an ordinance amending the official zoning map from a Rural Zoning District to Open Space District for three parcels of property added to the town's Boston Hill site. One parcel of 9.508 acres was donated by Rebecca Smith, Janey Katz, and Suzi Calhoun and a parcel of 14.858 acres was donated by the County of Grant. In attempting to determine ownership of another parcel termed "a sliver of land," the Planning and Zoning Commission discovered from 100-year-old survey records it was already owned by the town.
