The meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at the Gilbert Municipal Building I, 50 E. Civic Center Drive, Gilbert. The June 16 agenda includes the final approval of the fiscal year 2020-21 town budget, secondary property tax levy and 2021-30 capital improvement plan.
Seating in council chambers will be limited to 60 people so physical distancing can occur, town officials said, and will be done on a first-come, first-served basis.
When capacity is reached, public members can stay in the lobby or go onto one of the town’s remote viewing options. The town will allow public members in the lobby to address the council if they wish, but everyone who requests that opportunity will be escorted into chambers one at a time for their turn to speak.
The town is strongly encouraging anyone attending the meeting to wear a face covering. Masks and hand sanitizer will be available.
The meeting also will be shown Cox Cable Channel 11 in town or on the town website at www.gilbertaz.gov/gilbertlive.
Those members of the public who wish to address the council from a remote location can do so through various means, including using a WebEx platform on a computer. More details on remote attendance and participation are available at https://www.gilbertaz.gov/community/residents/covid-19-information/public-meeting-notice.
The meetings had been closed to public attendance since mid-March because of the coronavirus pandemic. Other public meetings, including the Gilbert Planning Commission, also will open up to the public going forward.
