Boulder City Council to consider emergency remote meeting ordinance amid coronavirus

Daily Camera (Boulder): Boulder City Council on Tuesday will consider an emergency ordinance to hold remote meetings during certain circumstances, as the novel coronavirus COVID-19 continues to spread in the state and large gatherings are canceled across the country.

As of Thursday evening, with the only positive case associated with Boulder County being a University of Colorado Boulder employee, Council is planning to meet Tuesday, with a public hearing on the possibility of forming a new taxing district to fund the city’s public library system still on the agenda.

Officials are working out a way for members of the public to call in their comments for Tuesday night, should they not want to attend, city spokesman Patrick von Keyserling said. The public is still invited to be heard in person for those who choose to attend, but the city has arranged seating in Council chambers to accommodate social distancing, a news release said.
