Due to the continuing concerns over COVID-19 (Coronavirus), and the Governor’s temporary ban of gatherings with 10 or more people, the following changes to the Gloucester County Board of Supervisors’ meeting schedule have been made:
• The joint meeting of the Gloucester County Board of Supervisors and the Gloucester County School Board, originally scheduled for March 17th and previously postponed, is now cancelled.
• The public hearing on the proposed fiscal year 2021 budget and the public hearing on the calendar year 2020 tax rates, both of which were originally scheduled for March 25th, are cancelled. The public hearings will be rescheduled to a later date, which will be advertised in local media outlets and announced through the County’s website and social media.
• The Board’s budget work session, which was tentatively scheduled for April 1st, will not be held. Dates for additional budget work sessions will be determined during the coming weeks. Those dates will also be advertised in local media outlets and announced through the County’s website and social media.
The Chair of the Gloucester County Board of Supervisors, in consultation with the County Administrator, County Attorney, and the County’s Director of Emergency Management, indicates that these changes are necessary to allow additional action toward facilitation of the Board’s ability to have meetings electronically in the coming weeks. During this time, the County Attorney and County Administrator will continue to work together, with staff, to establish a timeline and appropriate tools/mechanisms for moving both the budget and other essential County business forward in a legal and compliant fashion.
