Public still not allowed to attend meetings in person, but can still view them remotely.
Frederick, Md (KM) The City of Frederick is taking a pause when it comes to in-person meetings. Officials says Frederick is at a “substantial community transmission level” when it comes to COVID-19.
All city buildings are open to the public, but masks are required for anyone entering these facilities. Depending upon a person’s length of stay, that individual may need to complete a screening-in-process.
At this time, citizens will not be permitted to attend public meetings in person, but they can watch them on line, and participate remotely. The Mayor and Board of Aldermen meetings will take place at City Hall, but they’re only open to board members and city staff. Meetings of the Historic Preservation Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals will remain virtual.
The City of Frederick says other boards and commissions are expected to return to in-person meeting schedules in October which will allow citizens to participate in person.
