“Given that the COVID-19 pandemic is an emerging, rapidly changing situation, we are doing our best to comply with open meeting laws as they relate to special meetings. The Mayor’s conference room is open to the public and we’re trying to provide additional transparency since the Tom Baker Room is not able to reliably teleconference.” --Mayor Bakken.
