CB3 Returns to In-Person Meetings in July
Couch surfing while attending Community Board meetings is officially a fad of the past.
Community Board 3 yesterday announced that remote meetings are discontinued effective today.
“The Executive Order allowing remote meetings has expired and the Governor is not renewing the order,” CB3 stated in an email letter. “The state Open Government law does not allow us to continue remote meetings after today. There has been and will continue to be lobbying to have the state legislature pass legislation to allow hybrid meetings, but this will not happen soon.”
In the meantime, the local advisory body is scouting locations for the July slate of committee meetings.
The news will likely be welcomed by local activists who claimed through the pandemic that opposing voices – mainly toward new liquor licenses – were allegedly silenced during Zoom meetings.
