Griffin Board of Commissioners has cancelled its April 14 meeting

Citing concerns regarding COVID-19 and the state’s shelter-at-home order, the Griffin Board of Commissioners has cancelled its regularly scheduled April 14 meeting.

A press release issued Thursday afternoon stated, “In order to comply with Governor’s Shelter in Place Order and out of an abundance of caution for our Commissioners, employees and citizens, the Griffin City Commission regular meeting scheduled for Tuesday, April 14 at 6 p.m. has been cancelled.”

It went on to say that commission members are in “constant contact” with local, state and federal partners, and that they are working hard to represent their constituents as they continue to fight the coronavirus pandemic. This includes daily conferencing with local emergency management, Department of Public Health and Governor’s Office officials and others, which “keeps the needs of the citizens, businesses and visitors to the city at the forefront of our daily decisions.”

City Hall remains closed to the public, city employees continue to provide necessary services. Customer Service is open, but customers are asked to use online services, phone and email to conduct most city business.

“Our strong belief in government transparency will ensure that no decisions are made without the opportunity for citizen input and future meetings, regular or called, will be advertised and open,” the press release stated. “We thank you for your patience during this time and look forward to the day when we can gather to conduct the City’s business in the usual manner.”
