Council Meeting Attendance Guidelines
The City Council meeting on VIA Video Conferencing using Zoom Optional for Elected Officials
The Chief Administrative Officer and the Chief Legal Counsel for the City of Waite Park have deemed an ongoing health pandemic and peacetime emergency by the office of the Governor of Minnesota, that warrants allowing members to choose to attend the meeting by electronic means as a precaution to ensure the health and safety of the other regular attendees of City Council meetings as well as members of the public who might choose to attend the meeting.

1. We will ensure that all members of the meeting body, wherever their physical location, can hear one another and can hear all discussion;
2. We will ensure that all members of the public present at the regular meeting location of the body can hear all discussion of the members of the boys; and
3. At least one member of the body, chief legal counsel, or chief administrative officer or designee will be physically present at the meeting location.
