Lawrence city commissioners will report to City Hall in person for their first meeting in April, according to a Thursday news release from the city.

Commissioners have held their meetings largely via videoconference since the COVID-19 pandemic began, with a few exceptions at times when case numbers were down.

In the City Commission meeting room, chairs can be distanced, and the lobby will be set up to accommodate members of the public as well.

“For those who choose to attend in-person, if the Lawrence-Douglas County Public Health Community Transmission Indicator is green, masks will be optional and if the indicator is in yellow, masks will be strongly encouraged,” according to the release.

“… Staff is working to make adjustments for other city boards and commissions to move to a hybrid format in the coming weeks.”

Members of the public, as well as city staff, will still be able to attend meetings and give public comment via Zoom.

The commission’s next meeting is set to begin at 5:45 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, 6 E. Sixth St. The meeting will also be livestreamed on the city’s website.
