Commissioners offering live video, call for meeting Thursday

Two bid openings and financial business are on the agenda for this week’s Seneca County commissioners meeting. The public is invited to attend the meeting electronically.

The commissioners plan to meet in person at 10 a.m. Thursday at their office, but ask the public not attend the live meeting due to the governor’s stay-at-home order now in effect to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

To maintain accessibility, the meeting is to be recorded, archived and streamed live through Zoom. Residents can join the Zoom meeting by computer or mobile device at zoom.us/j/449239893. Residents also can download the Zoom meeting app and join the meeting by using the ID 449 239 893.

Anyone who would rather call in and listen to the audio of the meeting while it’s occurring can dial (646) 558-8656.

Residents are asked to join the meeting 5-10 minutes before it begins.
