CITY COUNCIL MEETING
September 21, 2020
Regular Meeting - 7:00 PM
On March 18, 2020, Governor Whitmer signed Executive Order No. 2020-15, which temporarily suspends the Michigan Open Meetings Act (OMA) rules requiring meetings of public bodies to be held at a physical place with a physical presence at the meeting. This Order, under the Michigan Constitution of 1963 and Michigan law, was issued to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and protect public health while providing for the general public to continue to be able to participate in government decision-making.
On March 23, 2020, the Governor signed Executive Order No. 2020-21, designed to enforce social distancing to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Accordingly, the Oak Park City Council will be holding the regularly scheduled City Council Meeting electronically and not in City Council Chambers. This action is consistent with Executive Order No. 2020-15.
We invite the public to participate in City Council’s electronic meeting. The procedures are as follows.
