In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Huntington School Board will utilize an executive order issued by Governor Andrew Cuomo and hold its meeting next Monday night via a virtual platform.
The executive order exempts municipalities and school boards from certain provisions of the state Open Meetings Law pertaining to public access to locations where meetings are being held.
The governor’s order allows for attendance at meetings via telephone or similar means. Mr. Cuomo’s order suspends Article 7 of the Public Officers Law, “to the extent necessary to permit any public body to meet and take such actions authorized by the law without permitting in public in-person access to meetings and authorizing such meetings to be held remotely by conference call or similar service, provided that the public has the ability to view or listen to such proceeding and that such meetings are recorded and later transcribed.”
