Vienna Town Council to Hold Emergency Meeting Tonight

The Vienna Town Council will meet tonight (Tuesday) to consider virtual meetings for the town’s lawmakers, board members and commissioners.

According to the meeting’s agenda, the town will consider adopting a “Continuity of Government Ordinance” that would last for 60 days.

According to a draft of the ordinance, public entities would be allowed to meet electronically after providing a public notice three days in advance.

People would have the chance to access and comment on the meeting electronically.

Noting that “the COVID-19 pandemic makes it unsafe to assemble in one location a quorum for public bodies,” the ordinance says that non-emergency public hearings may get postponed.

The town’s proposal comes on the heels of Gov. Ralph Northam issuing a stay-at-home order to Virginians yesterday.

The state has recently seen an increasing number of COVID-19 cases — especially in Fairfax County.

The emergency meeting is set to start at 7 p.m.
