  • Summary date: Mar 17 2021 - More information

    Senate committee substitute adds the following content to the 1st edition.

    Applicable only to the City of Monroe, amends GS 166A-19.24 to authorize public bodies within an emergency area to conduct remote meetings upon issuance of a local declaration of emergency under GS 166A-19.22, in addition to the existing authority upon issuance of a gubernatorial or legislative declaration of emergency under GS 166A-19.20. Establishes a presumption that a remote meeting is open to the public so long as the public body has complied with the notice requirements of the statute. Adds to the remote meeting requirements to require that after notice is provided to the public for an in-person meeting, if one or more members will participate in the meeting remotely, the public body must amend the notice to include the means whereby members of the public can access the meeting remotely; limits amending the notice to six hours prior to the start of the meeting. Changes the requirements for a remote public hearing to require allowance for written comments on the subject of the hearing to be submitted between publication of any required notice and 24 hours before the scheduled start of the public meeting when the public hearing is scheduled to be heard (was between publication of any required notice and 24 hours after the public hearing). Makes conforming changes to the act's titles.

    Identical to H 199, filed 3/2/21.

    Amends the membership of the Mooresville Travel and Tourism Authority (Authority), set by SL 1991-296, as amended. Modifies current requirements to include one member rather than two representing the Mooresville-South Iredell Chamber of Commerce, and three rather than two members representing the motel or travel and tourism industry. Adds the following members: one member representing sites and attractions that increase the use of lodging, meeting, or convention facilities in the area or attract tourists or business travelers to the area, and one member appointed by the Mooresville Town Board (Town Board). Specifies that the Town Board must designate a voting member as chair (was, a member). Authorizes the Town Board to amend the resolution creating the Authority so long as the amendments are consistent with the act. Regarding the Authority’s directive to adopt rules of procedure to govern its meetings, adds a new requirement for the rules of procedure to include the rules of membership and attendance that pertain to other boards and committees appointed by the Town Board which are consistent with the act.
