Going forward ORC 940.39 was added with the passage of HB 340. ORC 940.39 allows the SWCD board to conduct meetings by video conference or, if video conference is not available, by teleconference. As a result of the COVID pandemic, video and telephone conferences are nothing new. However, know that this ORC change will allow for SWCD board meetings to be conducted by video conferences or teleconference into the future beyond the COVID pandemic.
Please call the office at 330.740.7995 for details regarding the June 2021 Board meeting and ORC 940.39 & HB 340.
