Denver City Council adding option of virtual meetings for members

Westword (Denver): Denver City Council is officially entering the year 2020.

Today, March 23, council will vote on emergency rules that would allow for members who have possibly been exposed to the coronavirus to phone in to council meetings rather than be present in council chambers.

The policy switch, which should pass unanimously and then take effect when signed by Mayor Michael Hancock, is designed so that council can continue providing “essential government services” and also ensure that meetings remain transparent to members of the public.
