HACKENSACK, N.J. — To protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public during the COVID-19 crisis, Hackensack will hold its upcoming city council meeting via video conference on April 7. Members of the public will be able to observe and participate in the meeting by using the “Zoom” online meeting platform. 

“We investigated numerous ways to conduct the city’s business during this crisis while making sure the public is able to participate, and holding our meeting via video conference was the best option,” said Mayor John Labrosse. “Any resident interested in watching the meeting or participating is encouraged to join our Zoom conference.” 

Instead of the regular in-person meeting time 8 p.m., the electronic public meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 7. The Committee of the Whole meeting “COW” scheduled for 6 p.m. is canceled, and there will be no executive session.
