Boulder allows city advisory boards and commissions to be held remotely amid coronavirus pandemic

Meetings could occur in certain circumstances

PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

Boulder on Tuesday announced city advisory boards and commissions will be allowed to hold remote meetings in certain circumstances, after it was decided earlier this month they would be canceled as officials responded to the coronavirus pandemic.

City Manager Jane Brautigam said the advisory bodies can have meetings scheduled by their corresponding Boulder department staff director if the meeting is necessary to award funds appropriated by the City Council, to provide feedback for an item scheduled for action by the Council or is approved by the city manager for another reason.

Participants will have to call in via telephone or computer to the meetings, with no in-person gathering at meetings permitted to protect public health from the spreading virus.

The city is providing updates on the pandemic and its response to it at bouldercolorado.gov/coronavirus.
