Public Notice regarding GLWA’s October 28 Legal Committee meeting
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE: On March 18, 2020, Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued Executive Order No. 2020-15, allowing remote participation in public meetings and hearings for public bodies subject to the Open Meetings Act during the COVID-19 pandemic. This Order allows public meetings of public bodies subject to the Open Meetings Act to be held electronically, including by two-way telephonic conference.
On March 23, 2020, Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued Executive Order No. 2020-21 requiring Michigan residents “to suspend activities that are not necessary to sustain or protect life.”
The meeting of the GLWA Legal Committee scheduled for October 28, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. will be held telephonically. Members of the public who wish to attend this meeting by telephone can do so in the following manner:
Call-In Number: 1-313-771-3116
Conference ID: 813 568 824#
There will be no public comment or active participation during this meeting. However, members of the public may provide written comments to the committee by emailing those comments to CEO@glwater.org on or before 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 27, 2020 and should reference “October 28, 2020 “Legal Committee” in the subject line of the e-mail.
The public is advised that although meetings of GLWA’s Legal Committee are typically held in conformity with the Open Meetings Act, The Legal Committee is a sub-quorum advisory committee to the GLWA Board of Directors and therefore not a “public body” required to meet publicly or adhere to that Act. (See OAG Opinion No. 6935, April 2,1997.)
