February 11, 2022 Expiration of Authority to Hold Remote Public Meetings
KEEPING YOU INFORMED…
In a previous client memorandum we advised you of legislation extending the authority for public bodies to hold public meetings remotely until the State’s COVID-19 disaster emergency ends. Pursuant to Executive Order No. 11.2, the current COVID-19 disaster emergency is in effect through February 15, 2022 unless Governor Hochul issues another executive order and continues it. We will let you know if the Governor does so. If the Governor does not continue the COVID-19 disaster emergency beyond February 15, 2022 then, effective February 16, 2022, you will no longer be authorized to conduct public meetings without inviting the public to attend.
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.
