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. 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 EDC 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 EDC 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 EDC staff to gather in the same location to participate in the scheduled meeting for the following items of business:
1. To approve the minutes of the Feb. 27, 2020 meeting
2. To elect officers for the Calendar Year 2021.
