City of Muskegon issued the following announcement on March 24.
Electronically on the City of Muskegon Government Facebook Page
Reason for Electronic Meeting
To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, protect the public health, and provide essential protections to vulnerable persons, it is crucial that all persons take steps to limit in-person contact. These critical mitigation measures include social distancing and limiting the number of people interacting at public gatherings. On March 18, 2020 Governor Whitmer signed Executive Order 2020-15 titled “Temporary authorization of remote participation in public meetings and hearings and temporary relief from monthly meeting requirements for school boards”. The City of Muskegon must continue to conduct public business during this emergency, including actions to respond to COVID-19, and the general public must be able to continue to participate in government decision making without unduly compromising public health, safety, and welfare. To protect the public health, safety, and welfare and comply with CDC recommendations, the City Commission meeting will be held remotely and electronically.
