REMOTE COUNCIL MEETINGS
Section 7.10.3 of the Arizona Attorney General’s Agency Handbook discusses “Remote Conferencing.” In the event that a city or town council is concerned about gathering for a council meeting, the handbook does describe provisions for allowing members of a public body to attend by telephone or other technological devices. A jurisdiction would need to confirm that its local ordinances allow for remote participation in council meetings. Additionally, communities may want to explore live-streaming options for council meetings should large, public gatherings be discouraged. Please bear in mind that Open Meeting Law affords the public the right to attend all open meetings, so live-streaming services must be used as an optional alternative and not as a required form of attendance. The League recommends using the council agenda to communicate key information to the public, including if there won’t be a call to the public, whether or not some or all members of the council will be attending remotely, and any remote viewing/listening options available.
