March 16, 2022 Expiration of Authority to Hold Remote Public Meetings
KEEPING YOU INFORMED…
As we advised in our February 15, 2022 client memorandum, the authority to conduct remote public meetings was continued through March 16, 2022.
The authority to hold public meetings without permitting the public to attend in-person (and, instead, providing the public with access to view or listen to the meeting remotely) extends only until the end of the State’s COVID-19 disaster emergency. The State’s COVID-19 disaster emergency will expire at the end of the day today unless Governor Hochul issues an executive order to continue the disaster emergency. We will let you know if the Governor does so.
If the Governor does not continue the COVID-19 disaster emergency beyond today then, effective tomorrow, March 17, you will no longer be authorized to conduct remote public meetings.
If you have any questions regarding in-person or remote public meetings, please contact Lindsay Crocker, Lauren Schnitzer or one of our other attorneys by calling (631) 694-2300.
THIS MEMORANDUM IS MEANT TO ASSIST IN GENERAL UNDERSTANDING OF THE CURRENT LAW. IT IS NOT TO BE REGARDED AS LEGAL ADVICE. THOSE WITH PARTICULAR QUESTIONS SHOULD SEEK THE ADVICE OF COUNSEL.
