ADMINISTRATIVE COMMITTEE HYBRID MEETING FINDINGS
After the return to in-person Common Council meetings earlier this summer, a small group of residents asked Council to consider holding hybrid meetings (allowing public participation both in-person and by remote video conference). As part of the deliberation process, the Administrative Committee has conducted extensive discussions and consultations to determine the viability and legality of hybrid meetings.
