Electronic Participation in Utility Board Meetings Ends June 30, 2020

On May 6, 2020, Governor Lee issued Executive Order No. 34 which extended the authorization for members of the governing bodies of local governments to participate in board meetings electronically through June 30, 2020. TAUD received a Memorandum from the Comptrollerís Office dated June 23, 2020, which states that Governor Lee does not intend to extend this authorization past June 30, 2020. A copy of this Memorandum is attached.

Therefore, it's back to business as usual when it comes to holding board meetings in person for utility districts, utility authorities, and the governing boards of municipal and county water and sewer systems. Utilities should continue to follow the Tennessee Pledge: Access Guidelines for Office Buildings as they apply to board meetings. These Guidelines can be found here: https://www.tn.gov/governor/covid-19/economic-recovery/office-guidelines.html
