BOCC to Hold May 26th Regular Session Virtually
Residents Can Access Video Live on DTN and Online; Meeting Will Serve as Public Hearing on FY 2020-21 Recommended Budget
Durham, N.C. – Due to the ongoing social distancing restrictions in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Durham Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) will continue to hold its meetings virtually. The next Regular Session to be held this way will be on Tuesday, May 26, 2020, at 7 p.m. During this meeting, there will be a Public Comment Hearing on the County Manager’s Fiscal Year 2020-2021 Recommended Budget. The meeting will be held on Tuesday due to most Durham County Government offices being closed for the Memorial Day holiday on Monday, May 25.
The virtual option aligns with social distancing requirements which ensures the safety of citizens who wish to participate as well as Board members and Durham County Government staff. Citizens who wish to view the BOCC meeting can watch it live on the Durham Television Network live on Spectrum Channel 8. The meeting will also be streamed live on the County’s website.
Residents wishing to submit citizen comments for agenda items or regarding the Recommended Budget Public Hearing should do so via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Saturday, May 23. Citizens may also submit their feedback for the Board on the recommended budget via the Online Budget Feedback Portal at www.dconc.gov/20-21budgetportal.
The agenda for Tuesday’s BOCC meeting will be posted here when available.
