Board Meeting Details
The July 27 board meeting was held in person at the LMC at Shepard Middle School. Due to COVID-19 gathering restrictions, only 50 people were permitted inside the LMC observing proper social distancing and wearing face coverings. An overflow viewing room was provided in the Shepard cafeteria with space to accommodate 50 extra people. Members of the public could listen/observe the meeting by logging in to a designated Zoom webinar. For open/community participation we created a dedicated voicemail line for public comment.
