Commerce City considering virtual meeting policy

Commerce City Sentinel Express: Nearly three years after allowing city council meetings via virtual methods, Commerce City is poised to make the practice permanent.

Interim City Attorney Matt Hader briefed councilors on what rules they’d need to adopt to make virtual meetings, with both City Councilors and residents able to appear in person or virtually via an online networking service like Zoom, a permanent part of the city government. Commerce City has been hosting virtual meetings via networking applications since the COVID pandemic started in 2020.

“As you know, our code requires our meetings to be in person,” Hader said. “But the trend around the country, especially during this past year, has been to establish permanent policies and make changes to codes and resolutions to allow electronic meetings to continue in the absence of a public health emergency.”
