Pursuant to the provisions of Executive Order No. 2020-154 issued by Governor Gretchen Whitmer on July 17, 2020, notice is hereby given that the Charlotte City Council will hold a special meeting on August 10, 2020 beginning at 6:00 p.m. and a regular meeting on August 10, 2020 beginning at 7:00 p.m. as electronic pubic meetings.
The reasons for holding electronic public meetings are to limit the spread of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) and to remain in compliance with Governor Whitmer’s Executive Order 2020-110, which limits the size of indoor public gatherings to no more than 10 persons.
The electronic public meetings will be held as video/telephone conferences, although some or all Council members are expected to meet in person in the City Hall Council Chambers. The public may participate in the electronic public meetings as follows:

The public will be able to listen to all discussion by Council members and will be permitted to speak for up to 5 minutes during the public comment sections of the agenda.
Members of the public, whether or not they are joining the electronic public meetings, may submit written comments and questions regarding any matter, including items of business that will come before the City Council. Written comments and questions may be submitted at any time. Those submitted prior to 12:00 noon on Friday, August 7, 2020 will be copied and included in the agenda packet for the meeting. Those submitted subsequent to 12:00 noon on Friday, August 7, 2020 but prior to the citizen comments portion of the agenda will be read aloud during the public comment portion of the agenda. Only the first 5 minutes of written comments will be read aloud but the full text of written comments will be provided to City Council members subsequent to the meeting.
To be considered for inclusion in the agenda packet or to be read aloud during the meeting, public comments and questions must include the name and home address of the person submitting them and must not include language that would be considered vulgar or be interpreted as hate speech or fighting words.
