STOP AND REWIND. On June 23, 2020, TAUD published a COVID-19 Update to inform its utility members that the authorization for the members of governing bodies of local governments to participate in board meetings electronically was not going to be extended past June 30, 2020. This June 23, 2020 Update was based upon a Memorandum issued by the Comptrollerís Office dated June 23, 2020, which stated that Governor Lee had informed the Comptrollerís Office that this authorization would not be extended.
