Madison County to start holding meetings in-person again in July

EDWARDSVILLE — Madison County will hold in-person meetings again starting next month.
“Starting in July, our plan is to host our committee and board meetings in person
again,” Chairman Kurt Prenzler said. “If we are asking employees to return to work then those
elected by the people should also return.”
The Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hold the first meeting at 8:30 a.m., Thursday, July 2 in
the County Board Room.
Prenzler said that although there were employees who worked remotely in the early phases of
the crisis, the majority have returned to county buildings.
“The county board room will be set up for social distancing, but there will only be room for a
limited number of people,” Prenzler said.
The County Board meets on the third Wednesday of each month and committee meetings are
held at various times throughout the month. The board and committee members have assigned
seating areas, whereas everyone else will be required to sit in the in the gallery seating.
Due to social distancing restrictions and the number of people who can attend, the county will
continue its live streaming on Twitch at https://www.twitch.tv/madisoncountyil. Public comments
for committees must be received 24 hours in advance at [email protected]
Prenzler said as long as there is space available to maintain social distancing members of the
public would be allowed to attend meetings.
“People with health issues or concerns should not come, but they can still listen
remotely,” Prenzler said.
