Parish Council Meetings during the COVID-19 crisis
As you are aware gatherings and meetings are not permitted during the lockdown however council business needs to be carried out as normal as possible. The government passed legislation on Friday 4th April 2020 permitting remote meetings for town and parish councils. Water Orton Parish Council wish to ensure that the public and press have access to these meetings and have agreed the following steps so that this is possible:
- The agenda will be issued on the Wednesday before the meeting date.
- Meetings will be available through Zoom. Details to access the meeting will be displayed on the agenda.
If you have any queries please contact the clerk by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
