Declarations of Emergency have been made at all levels of government including Montgomery County. A disaster exists which requires the County to assure continuity of government for a period not to exceed six (6) months. During a declared disaster, the Code of Virginia requires and allows governing bodies to conduct their meetings in manners which are consistent with providing continuity of government and in a safe and healthy manner, and for the public safety, health and welfare of the Board of Directors of the EDA and all attendees/ interested parties consistent with open government.
