Meeting & Information Announcement

Update on membership meetings meetings and COVID19 news related to beaches
Meetings:  There will be another special BOG meeting on Thursday, May 21, and a regular BOG meeting on Thursday, May 28.  Watch the website  for postings of times, agendas, and teleconference access number.  Public comments will be heard at the regular meeting on May 28.  Please continue to email concerns and questions to before then.
Budget:  The annual membership meeting has been postponed indefinitely.  As you may know, the BOG was directed to to adopt a budget without a public vote by Executive Order 7I.  The board proposed a budget and mill rate (see minutes of April 23 meeting), which it will vote to adopt on May 28.  However, this budget was proposed before potential expenses related to COVID could be considered, so it is possible that there will be discussion and modification of the proposed budget before voting to adopt on May 28.
Elections to Board of Governors  (2 seats): The governor has determined (Executive Order 7OO) that municipalities and quasi-municipal corporations ( BPBCA) must hold elections of officials between the dates of June 27 and June 30, using remote means if possible, and that no other business can be addressed at that meeting. The Board will discuss the procedures necessary for this process and inform the membership via the website.
Beaches: DEEP will publish a detailed operations plan early this week that municipalities may adapt to their needs, which will be published online at  In addition, we expect an update of executive orders related to COVID,  that are effective until at least May 20, by that date.
Please keep in mind, as we all try to balance recreation with safety, that facemasks “are meant to protect other people in case you are infected” (CDC, April 24).   (CDC, April 24). This practice is for the good of our friends and neighbors.  Let’s all try to take care of ourselves and each other this summer.
