Introduction

Due to the pending Novel Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and Federal, State and Palm Beach County’s Declarations of State of Emergency, the City of Lake Worth Beach may conduct meetings via Communication Media Technology (“CMT”). Use of CMT will allow the City to have City Commission meetings as necessary during the COVID- 19 pandemic.

Please note that Governor DeSantis’ Executive Order Number 20-69 suspended the requirement of a quorum to be present in person or requires a local government body to meet at a specific public place.  The Executive Order also allows local government bodies to utilize communications media technology, such as telephonic and video conferencing for local government body meetings.

In order to address the concerns with the COVID-19, public comment will be handled as follows:  If you desire to provide live public comment, all comments must be directed to the Office of the City Clerk by going to the website (this is the link: https://portal.lakeworthbeachfl.gov/public-comment-card/.) The City will accept such public comment cards up to fifteen (15) minutes before the start of the meeting.  You will receive an email with confirmation of the comment and another email from Zoom with details on how to access the meeting for you to read your comment into the record. You must be available on Zoom with your real name in order to speak.  There will be a checkbox if you prefer the City Clerk read the comment.  No inappropriate outbursts or interruptions from the public will be tolerated during commission meetings.  Any portion of a comment that violates the Rules of Decorum will not be allowed to be read at the meeting.  All comments will be maintained with the City’s meeting minutes.
