First public meeting since end of City’s State of Emergency.
On Wednesday, May 20, 2020 at 7 pm, members of public will again be able to attend Lawrenceville City Council meetings. This will be the first public meeting in City Hall since the May 13th end of the City’s State of Emergency related to the COVID 19 pandemic. Under the State of Emergency, the City Council has held meetings remotely and broadcast them on Facebook Live since March 23rd to protect public health. During that time, the public comment portion of the meetings has been tabled or placed on hold.
“Council Members, businesses, staff and our citizens have been remarkable during a time of constant change,” said Mayor David Still. “However, we are ready to get back to a new normal and to continue the necessary work to move Lawrenceville forward.”
City officials are implementing measures to support and protect public health during council meetings in line with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Public seating has been arranged and marked to separate individuals a minimum of 6 feet apart. If the modified seating capacity of the council chambers is exceeded, presenters and attendees will be directed to designated overflow space in City Hall. Council members and staff will wear masks and will also sit a minimum of 6 feet apart. Masks will be available to members of the public attending the meeting and will be encouraged upon entry.
The meeting will also be live streamed on Facebook. Citizens are reminded that comments submitted through the live stream platform will not be monitored during the meeting nor considered as part of any decision made during the meeting. Citizens subject to Governor Brian Kemp’s shelter in place due to age or condition who not wish to attend the meeting in person may submit comments on any Public Hearing item or Public Comments by sending written comments to Karen Pierce, City Clerk, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Comments must be received by 5 pm on Wednesday, May 20, 2020, and include name, address, and related agenda item.
The full agenda for the upcoming meeting will be published on the City of Lawrenceville website prior to the meeting. For additional information about the City of Lawrenceville, follow our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram platforms.
