Denver City Council to begin hybrid meetings

The Denver Gazette: The Denver City Council will begin holding its council and committee meetings both in person and online this week following the passage of a hybrid meeting model Monday.

The ordinance requires the council to provide the public with the ability to watch and participate in council meetings via methods like Zoom, even as the council reverts to in-person operations. The ordinance was unanimously approved without comment.

“The world has changed,” said Councilwoman Amanda Sawyer, who sponsored the ordinance, during a committee meeting. “COVID has created a very different way of doing business that was adopted much more quickly than it probably ever would have been … and there’s a real understanding that that’s okay.”
