Wellington To Host Virtual Council Meetings

The Wellington Village Council’s agenda review meeting on Monday, April 13 and regular meeting on Tuesday, April 14 will be conducted virtually with no members of the public in attendance in council chambers.

Village residents will have the option to listen in or watch both meetings, and to submit public comments before the council meeting.

Residents are asked to follow these Instructions for the Village Agenda Review meeting on April 13, which begins at 4 p.m., as well as these Instructions for the Village Council meeting on April 14, which begins at 7 p.m. To submit a public comment for the meeting, visit www.wellingtonfl.gov/publiccomment. You must fill out all required information for the form to be submitted. Residents can also provide written comments by e-mailing Wellington Village Clerk Chevelle Addie by April 14 at 5 p.m. at VillageClerk@wellingtonfl.gov. Other available options are by regular mail at 12300 W. Forest Hill Blvd., Wellington, FL 33414. Provide your full name and address, and if you are a village business owner, list the business name and address. If you request, written comments will be read into the record at the appropriate time.  All other written comments received by the deadline will be distributed to the mayor and council members and the appropriate staff prior to the start of the meeting. Time limits will be enforced, so written comments must be limited to 3 minutes.

Gov. Ron DeSantis issued Executive Order No. 20-69 on March 20, allowing municipalities to conduct meetings of their governing boards without having a quorum of its members present physically or at any specific location, and utilizing communications media technology such as telephonic or video conferencing, as provided by Section 120.54(5)(b)2, Florida Statutes.
