About Remote/Digital Meetings
Governor Gretchen Whitmer has issued an executive order (Executive Order 2020-75) providing temporary authorization of remote participation in public meetings and hearings. To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, to protect the public health, and to provide essential protections to vulnerable citizens, it was found to be crucial that all Michigan citizens take steps to limit in-person contact. These critical mitigation measures include social distancing and limiting the number of people interacting at public gatherings. To that end, it is reasonable and necessary to temporarily suspend rules and procedures relating to physical presence at meetings and hearings of public bodies and other governmental entities in Michigan. These public bodies and entities must continue to conduct public business during this emergency, including actions to respond to COVID-19, and the general public must be able to continue to participate in government decision-making without unduly compromising public health, safety, and welfare.
