Governing Council meetings will be held remotely
Pursuant to 7(e) of the Open Meetings Act, the regularly scheduled meetings of the Governing Council will be held remotely by video and audio conferencing, with limited in-person public attendance available, for the remaining 2020 dates listed below or until such time as the proclamation is revoked or expires.
Public comment will be accommodated at all meetings. Instructions on how to submit public comment and attend regularly scheduled meetings remotely will be included with the meeting agenda which will be posted on the Lake County Calendar, https://lakecounty.legistar.com/Calendar.aspx, prior to all meetings.
Meetings of the Committees of the Governing Council are scheduled as needed. As those meetings are scheduled, the committee name, date, time, Zoom link, public comment/remote attendance language, and agenda will be posted under “Governing Council Committees” as noted at the bottom of this web page.
In addition to the Board of Health, the Lake County Health Department and Community Health Center maintains a Community Health Center Governing Council.
The Governing Council oversees planning and direction of operations for the Community Health Center. To ensure a community voice in the direction of the Center, a majority of Council members are users of the Center’s services.
