Placer County officials have evaluated these meeting procedures following the March 24th Board meeting in order to continue to improve our remote public participation process. Please also be patient with us as we adjust to changes in process which are continually being provided by the County’s Public Health Officer and the Governor to further protect the public during the COVID-19 emergency.
“It’s important for Placer County to conduct its business to ensure essential services for our citizens,” said Board Chair Bonnie Gore. “We’re doing everything we can to facilitate social distancing and urge residents to take advantage of other methods to address the board versus attending meetings in person.”
“We hope our citizens understand and take to heart the need to participate remotely,” said CEO Todd Leopold. “This crisis may be part of our landscape for several months and we urge our citizens to adjust while still remaining a vital part of the governing process.”
Placer County is committed to do its part to limit coronavirus spread and has also reduced public counter service until further notice, providing online and phone services as alternatives. Essential services such as law enforcement, fire / emergency services, garbage, recycling, water, child protective services and waste water continue.
Placer County declared a local health emergency and a local emergency March 3,2020 to ensure public health professionals have all necessary tools at their disposal to protect the community from COVID-19. Placer’s ongoing COVID-19 response will continue uninterrupted by the office closure.
