Granger Special City Council Agenda

June 30, 2020 – 7 p.m.

City Hall, 1906 Main Street

 

On May 26, 2020, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds issued an updated Proclamation of Disaster Emergency, which among other matters, encouraged all vulnerable Iowans to limit their activities outside of their home including their participation in gatherings of any size and any purpose. Effective June 1st, the Governor’s Proclamation allows a community gathering (such as a public meeting) of more than ten persons so long as the venue capacity is limited and social distancing of at least six feet is maintained. The Governor further suspended state laws requiring a public meeting or hearing to extend the laws that could be interpreted to prevent a governmental body from limiting the number of people present for an in-person location of the meeting, providing the governmental body provides a means for the public to participate by telephone or electronically.

 

Since the meeting will be short, it was decided to conduct the meeting by Zoom instead of in-person. As permitted by Iowa Code Section 21.8 the Special City Council meeting will be conducted by electronic means. The public is encouraged to access the meeting electronically in the manner specified below.

 

The meeting will be conducted by Zoom at the following internet link or telephone numbers:
