Board of Review Meetings

Due to MDHHS restrictions, Board of Review meetings will be held via Zoom.

In-person public meetings prohibited through March 29, 2021.

A revised Michigan Department of Health and Human Services “Gatherings and Face Mask” Pandemic Order announced yesterday to allow contact sports to resume also extends the prohibition on in-person township, and all public, meetings through March 29, 2021. The revised order continues to prohibit indoor non-residential gatherings to no more than 10 people from no more than two households. The order goes into effect on Monday, Feb. 8 and runs through March 29. Outdoor meetings can be held, with gathering restrictions. Other types of indoor gatherings or activities may be allowed under the order as long as persons comply with the safeguards in the order, including wearing masks. However, MTA notes because the Open Meetings Act prohibits turning a person away from a meeting of a public body, indoor public meetings do pose a different situation. Even though a township can refuse entry to its hall or other facility if a person seeks to enter without wearing a mask or following other required safeguards, the township does not have that ability when a person seeks to enter a meeting of a public body. As a result of the order, the March board of review meetings MUST be held virtually or outdoors. As a reminder, “virtual” does NOT mean that everyone must participate via a computer. Most virtual platforms allow people to phone in, including using a landline phone or cell phone.
