Board Meetings Reopen to In-Person Attendance 

Last week, Governor Walz announced he was loosening some of the restrictions imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Consistent with that, Anoka County is opening county board meetings and management committee meetings, which take place just prior to regular board meetings, to the public for in-person attendance, starting May 25, 2021. Due to the pandemic, the Government Center remains closed except for the first floor. Accordingly, Anoka County is making special arrangements for members of the public who wish to attend board meetings in person. Information on how to attend meetings will be available on the official Anoka County website and at the top of each future meeting notice. For those who wish to monitor the board meetings remotely, web streaming and archived video of these meetings will still be available, as it was prior to the pandemic. Comments on agenda items will continue to be accepted at committee meetings, which was also standard practice before COVID-19 restrictions were implemented.
