Bozeman, MT – Due to the State of Montana’s Stay at Home Order and the City’s Emergency Declaration closing City facilities to public access, the April 6, 2020 meeting of the City of Bozeman’s City Commission will be held virtually, with no physical public presence allowed in the meeting room.
Nationwide, municipalities are weighing the need for continued public participation in the deliberation and decision making of their elected governing bodies, while ensuring that public safety is the top priority. As physically convening is not an option due to the COVID-19 pandemic, City of Bozeman staff have worked to create a process for viewing and participating in public meetings, as well as creating new opportunities for the public to give written and oral public comment.
The agenda for the Monday, April 6th meeting of the Bozeman City Commission can be found on the City of Bozeman’s website. As part of the City Commission’s meeting on April 6, 2020 the Commission will hear two appeals regarding the Armory Hotel project. Information related to each appeal is included in the City Commission’s agenda and can be found by clicking here. This meeting will be held using Webex, an online videoconferencing system.
