Indoor, In-Person Public Meetings Remain Prohibited through at least March 29th, 2021

No public allowed in meeting space for meetings. Michigan Department of Health and Human Services in coordination with Governor Whitmer, issued an updated Gatherings and Face Mask Order February 4th, 2021. The order, which took effect on February 8th, 2021, is focused on resuming certain contact and non-contact sporting events. However, it also serves to extend the prior gathering restrictions that have effectively prevented public bodies from conducting indoor, in-person meetings. The restrictions will remain in effect until at least March 29th, 2021

Please follow the virtual instructions in the special posting for the meeting that you would like to listen and/or join.
