As we continue to address our respective challenges associated with COVID-19, Village government continues to operate. And as there are matters the Village must continue to address as part of keeping the Village operational, our April 23,2020 Village Board meeting remains as scheduled. The Village will be following the most updated occupancy limits as they apply to government meetings in addition to recognizing/maintaining the social distancing that we all should be practicing as per the Rockland County Department of Health recommendations. We will be keeping the Agenda (see posting on website) to essential items…Village operations will be maintained and the public will have the lawful access that is required/permitted.
Additionally, on March 7, 2020, in Executive Order No. 202.1, Governor Cuomo suspended certain provisions of the Open Meeting Law to permit a Village Board to meet and take actions authorized by law without permitting in public in-person access and authorizing such meeting to be held remotely by conference call or similar service, provided that the public has the ability to view or listen to such proceeding and that such meetings are recorded and later transcribed. The Village will be activating a remote meeting platform for the March 26th Village Board meeting, which will enable residents to phone in and listen to the meeting in compliance with the Executive Order. In the interests of the public’s heath and safety, the Village Board strongly encourages residents to utilize this platform. The information for accessing the meeting as it happens are set forth below, and are also are posted on the Village website.
