The Mount Olive Town Board of Commissioners postponed its April 6 meeting in light of the ongoing COVID-19 threat. Town officials are looking at ways to hold the board’s next meeting remotely, through technology.
“What we are attempting to do is set up a remote to have a meeting. It is allowed under state law,” said Town Manager Charles Brown. “We are now setting up the technology so the board can meet in a remote setting, even participate in a meeting from their home.”
Brown said the meeting will not take place at town hall and residents won’t be able to make public comments.
Anyone who wishes to make a public comment should call ahead of the next meeting.
“People have got to understand that these are different times we are living in right now and we are going to have to make accommodations for it,” Brown said.
The remote meetings will be available for public access.
