NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ - Tonight's City Council meeting will be conducted via call-in conferencing to allow the public to participate.
The city has been using teleconferencing technology to facilitate meetings in the wake of statewide social distancing mandates.
Gov. Phil Murphy's Executive Order No. 104 - the so-called Stay At Home Order - instructed almost all of the state's 9 million residents to stay home and also ordered non-essential retail businesses closed until further notice.
The call-in option will allow members of the public to participate in the meeting by dialing in and using an access code without entering New Brunswick City Hall.
There are two phone numbers provided for the public to participate in the meeting.
Persons wishing to participate may phone-in by dialing 646-992-2010 and entering access code 718-741-956 or by dialing 872-240-3212 and entering access code 841 -683-549.
Call-in participants will be able to hear all remarks made during the City Council meeting.
During the public comment portions of the meeting, members of the public will be able to participate and contribute, much like a standard conference call.
All standard rules and procedures pertaining to City Council Meetings will apply.
City staff will be available by phone to offer technical support by calling 732-745-5007.
The telephonic conferencing system will be activated at 6:25 p.m.
Members of the City Council and limited support staff will take part in the meeting from inside Council Chambers while practicing social distancing.
