Due to the public health emergency guidelines established in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, only 40 members of the public will be allowed in the meeting room at one time. All members of the public will have to wear a mask to enter the building.

However, in an effort to allow more public access to the meeting, the Board asks those persons attending for a single agenda item to leave after that item is heard. This will allow other members of the public to rotate into the room.
