  • is there a way that this meeting can be on facebook live or something that the whole county could watch as only a few would be permitted to attend the meeting with the limited numbers set in the building at one time

  • That would be great. They should conduct their meetings like cloverdale. Live and able to ask questions.

  • Under the governors current order all public governmental board meetings must be made available remotely in real time. If you want to attend a commissioners meeting you must contact their attorney and you will be able to listen to the meeting over a cell phone. I hope for this joint meeting they will decide to stream it over facebook live or thru Google or zoom.

  • From what I read, the governor only "encouraged" public meetings to be available remotely. You don't really believe the commissioners are going to do that, given their avoidance of public view by holding morning meetings only and not publishing the minutes online, do you?
