The Retreat is currently <br /> scheduled for January 22, 2021 from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm. The Retreat Planning Committee <br /> has recommended that the Retreat be re-scheduled to occur over two days. As proposed, the <br /> Retreat would convene on Friday, January 22, 2021 starting at 2.00 pm and recess late that <br /> afternoon. The Retreat would then re-convene at 9:00 am on Saturday, January 23, 2021. <br /> The second change relates to Board of Commissioners' meetings currently being scheduled to <br /> occur in-person in 2021. Due to current public health concerns, it is proposed that the <br /> Board of Commissioners conduct Virtual Board meetings during the months of January, <br /> February and March 2021. <br /> Members of the Board of Commissioners would be participating in the meetings remotely. <br /> As in prior meetings, members of the public would be able to view and listen to the meeting via <br /> online streaming video or on Spectrum Cable TV. The meetings would be streamed in real- <br /> time on the County's website for public viewing/listening, real-time broadcast on Spectrum <br /> Cable, and video-recorded for future television broadcast and reference on the County's <br /> website. <br />
