COUNCIL MEETINGS AND COVID-19
On Tuesday, April 21m the Governor signed Senate Bill 841 into effect. Senate Bill 841 (1)
In this bill, local governments (and their subdivisions) are now formally permitted to conduct public hearings by electronic means. The Bill permits municipalities and local boards to perform public meetings using remote technology, it allows for the board members to appear remotely from separate locations, and requires prior notice.
The public notice section appears to suspend the obligation to post all notices in the newspaper and instead allows for notification by posting on the subdivision’s website or in the newspaper. The Bill also appears to permit public input to be limited to written comments as opposed to participation in an online forum. So, you should also review the notice to determine what type of participation is permitted at the public meeting.
