As we have previously reported, the Department of Community Affairs (DCA) issued emergency regulations regarding emergency remote meeting protocols for local public bodies. The DCA is also taking action to make these emergency regulations permanent and will be accepting public comments.
The League is working with stakeholders to review these regulations in order to submit comprehensive comments and we invite you to provide your feedback for inclusion in League comments. If you have thoughts or concerns regarding the emergency regulations or plan to submit your own comments to the DCA, we ask that you please share these with the League.
These rules will be published and proposed for permanent adoption in the upcoming October 19, 2020, New Jersey Register. Comments on these regulations can be made but must be submitted no later than November 18, 2020.
