Questions About Restrictions & Zoom Meetings – January 2022
With the recent COVID-19 restrictions due to the Omicron variant, we have been asked about whether we will be resuming holding Council Meetings on Zoom. At this point, we have not received any new direction from the provincial government, which means the guidance is still to hold the meetings in person; however, we have gone back to 50% capacity limits. We have also reached out to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs to flag our concerns about the new requirements for holding Zoom meetings.
In September 2021, the provincial government changed the legislative requirements for hosting electronic meetings. Under the updated legislation, there are two new key requirements:
We are also limited by the technology in our existing Council Chambers. Although the technology software and hardware does exist and could be purchased by the Village with approval, additional staff would also be needed, both to provide technology support and so that an Officer can supervise the viewing location.
Dealing with the constant changes to restrictions and requirements for COVID-19 continues to be extremely challenging for the Village, particularly as we are a small organization. We are doing our best to make sure we meet all provincial requirements, provide a means for our residents to view and participate in Council meetings and still keep everyone safe under very difficult circumstances. We all hope that in 2022 we will soon see an end to the restrictions and changing requirements.
We will continue to post updates here and on Facebook if there are any new changes or requirements due to COVID-19 that affect Council Meetings.
