The Owensboro Utility Commission meets will hold a special meeting by video teleconference, as permitted by and in conformity with KRS 61.826. The regularly scheduled meetings on the first and third Thursday will not be held in July.
The coronavirus pandemic and the declaration of a state of emergency by the Governor of Kentucky make it infeasible for the Commission to provide meeting room conditions at a physical location where the public could observe the meeting and not be in close proximity to one another. Consequently, as permitted by the Kentucky Attorney General in OAG 20-05 and SB 150 of the 2020 Kentucky Acts, the video teleconference of the meeting will be made available to the public by live streaming and can be found at omu.org/commission.
The video conferencing of the meeting will be conducted pursuant to the provisions of KRS 61.826. While the primary site for the meeting will be the Board Room on the third floor of the OMU Customer Service Center at 2070 Tamarack Rd., Owensboro, Kentucky, physical observation of the meeting by the public at that site will not be available, as allowed by OAG 20-05. If for any reason the video teleconference is interrupted, the meeting will be continued as an audio conference, as permitted by 2020 Kentucky Acts, SB 150, Section 1, subsection (8)(b).
Please note that meeting date/time may change due to schedule conflicts. For additional information, please call 270-926-3200
