YOU ARE HEREBY NOTIFIED that the Regular City Commission meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 7, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. utilizing communications media technology with elected officials and City staff participating through video conferencing.
On March 20, 2020, Governor DeSantis issued Executive Order #20-69 suspending any Florida Statute that requires a quorum to be present in person or requires a local government body to meet at a specific public place. The Order further allows for local government bodies to utilize communications media technology, such as telephonic and video conferencing.
A copy of the agenda for the April 7, 2020 meeting can be accessed HERE.
