City of Au Gres to hold remote meeting

Posted

The City of Au Gres will hold a remote meeting April 7,  a move made necessary by the COVID-19 pandemic and recent changes allowed under the state’s Open Meeting Act. 

The meeting will take place over Zoom, a video and conferencing platform. A totally remote meeting was not allowed under state law until recently. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed an Executive Order March 18, suspending certain parts of the Open Meeting Law. Now, members and anyone appearing at a meeting can participate remotely. Meetings don’t need to be held in a public place if an alternative to allow public participation and observation can be arranged.

At Tuesday’s meeting, there will be a public comment period at the start of the meeting, or people can submit written comments beforehand. Written comments must be received by 5:00 pm on April 7 th to be included in the meeting. Comments can be made by email by sending them to citymanager@cityofaugresmi.com.

Video log on information and agenda can be viewed at the City of Au Gres website cityofaugres.com or calling the Au Gres City Hall at 989.876.8811 during normal business hours.
