Waverly City Hall

The Governor of Iowa has declared a Public Emergency because of the COVID-19 outbreak. The Mayor has determined that an in-person meeting of the City Council is impossible or impractical without violating the Governor’s mandates.

When an in-person meeting is “impossible or impractical,” Iowa Code Section 21.8 permits a governmental body to conduct a meeting by electronic means.

The meeting will be conducted by video conference using ZOOM from the Council Chambers. The Mayor, City Administrator, City Clerk and City Attorney will be in the Council Chambers. The seven Council members will not be in the chambers but will participate via ZOOM conferencing.

The video/audio conference of the meeting will be broadcast on the normal public access channels. We will strive to maintain the quality of the video and audio during that broadcast. Public access is available through this broadcast.

Because there is one public hearing at this meeting, we will provide a ZOOM link for anyone that wants to comment during the public hearing. The link can be used on any computer, tablet or smartphone. Written comments submitted before the meeting are always welcome and will be shared with Council.

Meeting minutes will still be kept and will include a statement explaining why an in-person meeting was impossible or impractical.
