Due to the coronavirus pandemic and the need for social distancing, the Carroll County Legislative Body will be attempting its first ever video conference meeting on Monday, April 13.
The body’s 21 commissioners will be chiming in from home via cell phones, computers, and other devices, if all the technology works like it’s supposed to.
County residents can watch the meeting live on the Carroll County News-Leader’s YouTube channel. They can find it online by searching Carroll County News-Leader on YouTube.
The recorded meeting will remain on YouTube for those who want to view it later.
Last month, Gov. Bill Lee temporarily suspended the requirement for governing bodies to have a quorum of the members physically present for the meeting via Executive Order 16. (Click Here To Read More on Executive Order 16)
