City Set to Return to In-Person Meetings

With COVID-19 cases declining dramatically, City of Poughkeepsie officials announced today that in-person public meetings will return effective the week of March 21. 

 “We surely hope the worst of this pandemic is behind us, and we can get back to some sense of normalcy,” said Mayor Rob Rolison. “This has been a difficult period, but I am proud of city staffers who have stepped up and found creative and innovative ways to allow the city to continue to do business and to hold public meetings and hearings.”

Common Council Chair Sarah Salem said, “Governor Hochul made the right decision to extend the remote meeting authorization during the peak of the latest wave of COVID cases, but, as we see those numbers decreasing, we welcome the return of in-person meetings. Because we witnessed an increase in public participation thanks to the virtual meeting platform, moving forward we're working with City Hall Staff to see if a hybrid approach might be available to us so as not to lose this increased engagement”

The city’s public meetings are also videoed and made available for replay on the city’s website,
