Planning Commission Regular Meeting Thursday, September 22, 2022: 6:00 pm

On January 18, 2022, Governor Scott signed 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.
