The EDA Board of Directors will have a Called Meeting to discuss an Economic Development Project in closed session (P2020014 and P2020027) and take action upon the Town of Blacksburg, Town of Christiansburg, and Montgomery County CARES Act Grant Application distribution.
Declarations of Emergency have been made at all levels of government including Montgomery County. A disaster exists which requires the County to assure continuity of government for a period not to exceed six (6) months. During a declared disaster, the Code of Virginia requires and allows governing bodies to conduct their meetings in manners which are consistent with providing continuity of government and in a safe and healthy manner, and for the public safety, health and welfare of the Board of Directors of the EDA and all attendees/ interested parties consistent with open government.
The COVID-19 virus makes it impractical and unsafe for the Board of Directors of the EDA to physically assemble in one location. The virus also makes it impractical and unsafe, as well as potentially life threatening, for the public and the EDA staff to gather in the same location to participate in the scheduled meeting for the following items of business:
- In closed session discuss projects 2020014 and 2020027
- To approve the passage of grant funding to the businesses approved by the Town of Blacksburg, Town of Christiansburg and Montgomery County
In an effort to meet the guidelines that have been outlined by both federal and state government public health and elected officials, the virtual meeting of the EDA can be viewed online at:
