PLANNING COMMISSION MEETINGS; DATES, LOCATIONS & TIMES OF MEETINGS
Ken made a motion to continue meeting on the 2 nd and 4 th Monday of every month starting at 6 pm and on a remote basis [pursuant to Act 78 into law. The purpose of the Act is to allow public bodies to “organize and hold open meetings in a manner that will protect the health and welfare of the public while providing access to the operations of government.” The Act does this by allowing temporary Open Meeting Law procedures that will remain in effect until January 15, 2023. Among the temporary allowances is that municipal public bodies can hold completely remote meetings through electronic participation only, without designating a physical meeting location, and electronic posting for agendas and special meeting notices.] Kate seconded Ken’s motion. Motion carried unanimously by voice vote (4-0).
Lynn made a motion to adjourn the Organizational meeting at 6:14 pm. Jane seconded the motion.
