Regular City Council Meeting
WELCOME - Copies of this agenda, staff reports and other material available to the City Council are available at the City Clerk’s office in City Hall, 675 Wildwood Avenue and available on the City’s website at cityofriodell.ca.gov. Your City Government welcomes your interest and hopes you will attend and participate in Rio Dell City Council meetings often.
SPECIAL PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY ALTERATIONS TO MEETING FORMAT
Due to the unprecedented public health threats posed by COVID-19 and the resultant need for social distancing, changes to the City Council meeting format are required. Executive Order N-25-20 and
N-29-20 from Governor Gavin Newsom allow for telephonic Council meetings of the City Council
and waives in-person accessibility for Council meetings, provided that there are other means for
the public to participate. Therefore, and effective immediately, and continuing only during the
period in which state or local public health officials have imposed or recommended social distancing
measures, the Rio Dell City Council will only be viewable via livestreaming through our partners at
Access Humboldt via their YouTube channel or Suddenlink channels on Cable TV.
