City of Boulder Allows Board and Commission Meetings to Be Held Remotely.

The City of Boulder has issued an emergency order that allows board and commission meetings to occur, as long as they are held remotely. City Manager Jane Brautigam signed the order today, effective immediately.   

Under the new order, the department director has the authority to schedule and hold a remote board and commission meeting. Board and commission meetings may be held remotely in the following circumstances: 

  • The meeting is necessary to award funds appropriated by City Council.  
  • The meeting is necessary to provide feedback for an item scheduled for action by City Council; or  
  • The meeting is necessary for another reason approved by the city manager.  

Under the order, all meetings shall be held remotely with all persons participating by telephone or computer and no in-person gathering shall be permitted. 

As stated in the declaration, these orders are necessary to prevent the assembly of large groups of people, which present a risk of infection. Once issued, the city manager may change this order during the declared local disaster emergency. 

The city, in partnership with health officials, will continue to monitor COVID-19 developments and provide updates to the community. Visit https://bouldercolorado.gov/coronavirus for the latest city information.
