City upgrades remote technology, public meetings move to remote access

HUNTINGTON – Recently upgraded remote technology capabilities will allow the City of Huntington to provide virtual access to all public meetings and hearings, effective immediately.

“The City is increasing our availability to the public in public meetings and bringing our technology up to twenty-first century capabilities,” Huntington Mayor Richard Strick said Monday.

With Huntington County COVID-19 transmission levels remaining high, no in-person public meetings will be conducted through the end of March. In-person access will be reevaluated prior to the second quarter of 2021.

This change will affect meetings of the Huntington Common Council, Board of Public Works & Safety, Board of Zoning Appeals and Historic Review Board in addition to the Planning and Redevelopment commissions during this period. Members of these boards and commissions will connect remotely to participate in their respective meetings. Public and press access also will be available remotely.

Gov. Eric Holcomb’s Executive Order 20-09, issued this past March and extended again on December 31, 2020, provides flexibility under Indiana’s Open Door Law allowing governing bodies to meet virtually.

Residents and media will have remote video and phone access to all remotely held public meetings. Each remotely held public meeting’s agenda and unique remote access codes will be posted on the City of Huntington website, www.huntington.in.us/city, no later than the Friday preceding the meeting.

Common Council meetings are held the second and last Tuesdays of the month. The Board of Public Works & Safety regularly meets on the first and third Mondays.
