Due to continued concerns over the spread of the Delta variant of the Coronavirus, the City of Newburgh will return to conducting its upcoming City Council Work Sessions and Regular Council meetings via an in-person/virtual hybrid model, effective the October 7, 2021, City Council Work Session and until further notice.
The return of in-person/virtual hybrid City Council Work Sessions and Regular Meetings will limit access to the Council Chambers to eighteen (18) members of the public. Those in attendance will be required to social distance and wear a face mask at all times while inside City Hall and the Council Chambers.
Entrance to the Council Chambers for Work Sessions and Regular Meetings will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. When the capacity level is reached, a notice will be placed on the front door of City Hall informing the public. These measures are in place to ensure the health and safety of everyone involved while discussions, deliberations, and actions of the Mayor and City Council remain transparent.
All City Council work sessions and regular Council meetings will continue to be live-streamed on the City’s website and Facebook pages, as well as via Zoom. Under this hybrid model members of the public will have the option to participate in-person or virtually via Zoom. This hybrid model aims to ensure members of the public have continued access to meetings in a format that is comfortable for them.
