 NOTICE
CITY COUNCIL MEETING
May 12, 2021
Special 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.

Please do NOT access the meeting using both video conference and phone—it creates significant noise feedback.

    The time limit for an individual’s public comments shall remain 3 minutes.
