NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
BUFFALO AND ERIE COUNTY WORKFORCE INVESTMENT BOARD, INC.
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a public hearing will be held by the Buffalo and Erie County Workforce Investment Board, Inc. (the “BECWIB”) on October 18, 2022, 8:40 a.m., local time, at 726 Exchange, Buffalo NY, 8th Floor Barton Conference Room, immediately preceding the BECWIB Board of Directors meeting at 9:00 AM, in connection with the following matters:
As part of the 2022 State Budget, the New York Legislature amended the Section 103 of the Public Officers Law (the “Open Meetings Law”) to provide when and how public bodies may conduct meetings via videoconference technology. The amended Open Meetings Law allows the BECWIB to adopt a resolution authorizing it to conduct Board and committee meetings using videoconference technology so long as a quorum of the board or committee is physically present at one or more locations where the public can also attend in person and certain procedural requirements are met. The BECWIB has established proposed written procedures that will govern the use of videoconference technology used to conduct public meetings.
A representative of BECWIB will, at the above-stated time and place, hear and accept written comments from all persons with views in favor of or opposed to the use of videoconference technology to conduct meetings of the board or committees which are open to the public. At the hearing, all persons will have the opportunity to review the proposed written procedures that will govern the use of videoconference technology used to conduct public meetings.
