District Board Meeting

August 12 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am

Because of the ongoing situation, and limitations on travel and group gatherings associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, the district is instituting several changes for the upcoming meeting. The changes outlined below are being implemented to protect public safety and to comply with Oregon Governor Kate Brown’s Executive Order to limit travel and maintain social distancing.

Location and Access

The board meeting will not convene in a public setting but by telephone conference ONLY.

Remote Participation

The district is providing an option for people to listen and participate by conference call. This option complies with Oregon Public Meeting and Records Law requirements, by allowing the public to hear the discussion and deliberation of district business.

Instructions for the Conference Call

Call-in number: 1-646-749-3112, when prompted, enter Access Code: 404-858-757# – Follow the prompts for the option to push a second “#” sign. Once connected to the call, you will be able to hear others on the line and provide comments over the telephone. When participating in the conference call , please use MUTE on your phone, unless you are speaking. This will eliminate the potential for excess background noise.

Meeting Facilitation

The board chair will be facilitating the meeting. The chair will instruct those talking on the phone to identify themselves and follow the district’s normal meeting rules and procedures.

For board members or others involved in agenda items, please present information or motions clearly so district staff can accurately record the appropriate information for the minutes.

Scope of Agenda
The board will limit the agenda to essential business items that are needed for operations and to fulfill requirements. The agenda will be focused primarily on topics that need board action. Updates and discussion on projects or district activities that do not require board action will be postponed to a future meeting.

Conservation Partners Reports/Updates
The district typically provides an opportunity for conservation partner updates. To save time and limit the need for verbal updates, the district suggests conservation partners submit written reports to the district. If conservation partners need time for a short verbal update, the chair requests brevity. Written reports may be emailed to julie@yamhillswcd.org

Public Comment
As with all board meetings, there will be opportunity for public comment. Public comment is typically limited to five minutes, unless the chair provides an extension of time. As a reminder, public comment may be submitted in writing. This option allows members of the public to provide comments to the extent desired, without a five-minute limitation.

Thank you for considering the use of the conference call for the upcoming District Board Meeting to help the district ensure public safety. If you have questions about the meeting and use of the conference call option, please contact Julie at least 24 hours in advance of the meeting at 503-376-7600.

Please stay safe and healthy.
