Monroe City Council Meeting Mitigation Measures re: Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)

Friday, March 20, 2020 - 2:30pm

Monroe City Council Chairwoman Juanita Woods announces the following re: mitigation
measures being taken to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 disease while continuing to
have City Council meetings:

“The next regularly scheduled Monroe City Council meeting is 6:00 pm Tuesday, March 24,
2020, at Monroe City Hall. In compliance with Governor Edwards’ Executive Order and the
Attorney General’s open meetings guidance concerning COVID-19, we will adhere to the 50-
person attendance limit and practice social distancing while in the meeting. We will
LIVESTREAM the City Council meeting on the Monroe City Facebook page to allow residents
to “virtually attend” the meeting and see what is taking place in real time. The public can view
the abbreviated agenda and full agenda packet for this meeting by visiting the links below,
which are on the City website. If anyone has comments or questions about an agenda item,
please email your questions/comments to the City Council Clerk’s office by 12:00 pm on
Tuesday, March 24. The email address to submit questions/comments is
carolus.riley@ci.monroe.la.us . All emails must include the name of the person submitting the
questions/comments, his or her physical address and identify the specific agenda item to which
the questions/comments relate. One of our City Attorneys will read the questions/comments
related to the agenda item identified in the email during the meeting to allow for “public input”
on that agenda item. The rules permitting citizen participation at the conclusion of the meeting
may be suspended, upon motion and approval by Council, due to the precautions put in place by
Governor Edwards. Finally, the Administration has requested the removal of all condemnations
from the agenda, which will alleviate the need for attendance by those who buildings are subject
to a proposed condemnation at this meeting.”
