Virtual meetings for any reason allowed through March 30, 2021
Public Act 254 of 2020 allows townships, and all public bodies, to conduct electronic “virtual” meetings under any circumstance through March 30, 2021. Beginning March 31, 2021, through Dec. 31, 2021, remote participation would be permitted only for military duty, a medical condition, or a statewide or local state of emergency or state of disaster under the legislation. Additional changes would permit a state of disaster or emergency declared pursuant to a local ordinance (in addition to those declared under law or charter) by a local official, local governing body or chief administrative officer. For a meeting of a public body held in person prior to April 1, 2021, the public body shall ensure adherence to social distancing and mitigation measures as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control, including the six foot spacing requirement between individuals and heightened standards for facility cleaning and disinfection.
