The Hall County Board of Commissioners work session and voting meeting scheduled for next week have been canceled in light of Gov. Kemp’s shelter in place executive order.
The work session was originally scheduled for 3 p.m. Monday, April 6, and the voting meeting was scheduled to occur on Thursday, April 9 at 6 p.m..
“As has been the case throughout the COVID-19 crisis, the health and safety of our citizens, employees and visitors remains at the forefront of our operations,” Hall County Commission Chairman Richard Higgins said. “We are fortunate to live in a community where government can partner with its citizens in this effort to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.”
In addition to the Board of Commissioners meetings, the Hall County Planning Commission meeting originally scheduled for Monday, April 6 has also been canceled.
The next scheduled Board of Commissioners work session is scheduled for Monday, April 20 at 3 p.m. in the Commission Meeting Room of the Hall County Government Center. The next voting meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 21 at 6 p.m. in the same location. The Hall County Planning Commission will also hold their next meeting on Monday, April 20 at 5:15 p.m. All items originally scheduled to be heard at next week’s meetings will move to the meetings later in the month.
“We will evaluate the situation in regards to COVID-19 as we approach the next round of meetings and will make a decision as to whether or not we need to cancel those meetings at that time,” said Higgins.
As a reminder, a multitude of opportunities exist for residents to conduct Hall County business online. For example online motor vehicle services, including vehicle registration renewals, the payment of insurance fines, etc. are available via the "Online Payments" button on Hall County’s website, www.hallcounty.org. That’s also where citizens can pay their property tax, renew their business license, and more.
