In accordance with Governor John Bel Edwards emergency declaration effective September 14, 2020 through October 9, 2020, the City has established a maximum capacity of 50% of the Louisiana State Fire Marshal occupancy limits for Council Chambers. The State Fire Marshal has established an occupancy limit of 60 people; therefore, for the duration of this emergency declaration, the maximum capacity for Council Chambers shall be 30 people. Individuals that have placed items on the agenda for any City Council or Board meeting scheduled in Council Chambers will be allowed first access to the meeting. All other individuals will be allowed on a first come first served basis until the maximum capacity is reached. An Administrative Liaison will be monitoring the entry to all meetings, and will also be available to accommodate the entrance of individuals that are required to wait outside until such time that entry is allowed once full capacity is reached. All hallways and lobbies shall remain clear at all times.
Face coverings shall be worn for all meetings conducted in Council Chambers.
