It’s been nearly a month, but the Board of Osceola County Commissioners will meet Monday to carry out the general and routine business of the county.
Of course, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, it won’t be routine, since steps are required to protect the health of the public while still ensuring continuity of Osceola County business.
The meeting will be at the Osceola Heritage Park events center, like its last two procedural meetings. Since the county must first extend its COVID-19 state of emergency for another week before this week’s expires, the meeting will begin at 9:15 a.m.
To ensure health safety of all involved, members of the public will not be permitted to attend in person and will only be allowed to participate telephonically. To listen to live meetings, citizens are invited to stream the audio via www.osceola.org, or by calling 407-205-0551, access code 301797. (Per the Office of the Governor at a time like this, meetings of Boards of County Commissioners are permitted to be held telephonically.)
There will still be public comment available. Those wanting to provide public comment on an Agenda item must preregister online by Friday at noon. The form includes questions about joining the meeting to speak or having comment read by the board during the meeting, the agenda item and the comment and the ability to email documents of the Clerk of the Board.
The Agenda for April 13 is available at https://www.osceola.org/events/2068442-bcc-meeting.stml.
A look at the agenda shows a number of zoning, community development and administrative items have already been continued into May.
