April 15th Board Meeting Via Electronic Communication

Notice is hereby given that the Lake Worth Drainage District will conduct an electronic Regular Board Meeting utilizing communications media technology due to the COVID-19 Health Emergency on Wednesday, April 15, 2020, at 8:30 A.M. The purpose of the meeting is to transact any and all business to come before the District’s Board of Supervisors. Communications media technology will be used to constitute a quorum of the District Board of Supervisors and public participation will occur using communications media technology.

Due to these extraordinary times, the District’s Board of Supervisors will not be meeting in person; rather, the meeting will be held via videoconference. Pursuant to Executive Order 20-69 issued on March 20, 2020, by Governor Ron DeSantis, “Local government bodies may utilize communications media technology, such as telephonic and video conferencing, as provided in Section 120.54(5)(b)2, Florida Statutes.” Public input may be made in advance by email or during the meeting via video conference. Instructions are provided at the bottom of this notice. This meeting will be live-streamed and video recorded.


April 15, 2020, Regular Board Meeting of the Lake Worth Drainage District Board of Supervisors will be a webinar conducted electronically (or “virtually”) with no public in attendance in the district office. Members of the public may view the meeting electronically by visiting https://www.gotomeet.me/LWDD/aprilboardmeeting. Please choose this option for viewing the meeting if you do not plan to provide public comment before or during the meeting. Members of the public also may listen to the meeting by telephone by dialing +1 (571) 317-3129 and entering Access Code: 981-894-645. A copy of the meeting agenda and meeting materials are available on the District’s website at https://lwddnet.wpengine.com/board-of-supervisors/meeting-agendas-minutes.
