Covid-19 and Virtual Meetings

The State of North Carolina, Wake County, and the City of Raleigh have all declared States of Emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Governor Cooper has also imposed Executive Orders which are intended to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus by, among other things, requiring individuals to remain in their homes except when engaging in certain activities, and prohibiting any gatherings which do not comply with their terms.

The various in-person meetings and hearings regularly held by the Raleigh City Council, as well as the multiple City appointed boards and commissions (collectively "City Boards"), generally involve the physical attendance of the Council or City Board members, who in turn encourage physical public participation and input during those meetings. It is not uncommon for meetings to have a large attendance which could make compliance with the Executive Orders and currently recommended social distancing practices impossible. 

The General Assembly has approved the use of remote meetings during the statewide COVID-19 state of emergency pursuant to Session Law 2020-2, N.C. Gen. Stat. § 166A-19.24.  The remote meetings of the City Council and the City Boards will be conducted in accordance with the provisions of that statute.
