Considering the continued rise of COVID-19 case counts in Utah, meeting in an anchor location presents substantial risk to the health and safety of those in attendance because physical distancing measures may be difficult to maintain in the Murray City Council Chambers. Therefore, the City Council Chair has determined, pursuant to Utah Code section 52-4-207(4), that to protect the health and welfare of Murray citizens, an in-person City Council meeting, including attendance by the public and the City Council is not practical or prudent.  In order to safeguard the health of residents, business owners, city employees and elected officials, the public hearing will be held electronically in accordance with Utah Code section 52-4-207 and Murray City Council Resolution #R20-13 adopted on March 17, 2020. 

The public may view the hearing via the live stream at www.murraycitylive.com or https://www.facebook.com/MurrayCityUtah/. No physical meeting location will be available. 

If you would like to submit comments for the “public hearing” you may do so by sending an email in advance or during the meeting to city.council@murray.utah.gov Comments are limited to less than 3 minutes, include your name and contact information, and they will be read into the record.
