Mayor Rhea Little (electronically); Vice Mayor Ken Travis (electronically); Commissioner Nelson Andrews (electronically); Commissioner Anne Dunn (electronically); Commissioner Mark Gorman (electronically); Commissioner Susannah Macmillan (electronically); Commissioner Regina Smithson (electronically)
Staff Present:

Mayor Little stated the following:

"As you may know, Governor Bill Lee issued Executive Order 16 on March 16 and extended its provisions by Executive Order 34 on May 6 and Executive Order 51 on June 29. These Orders were issued to ensure that government continues to function openly and transparently during the COVID-19 emergency while taking appropriate measures to protect the health and safety of citizens and government officials. In his Orders, Governor Lee emphasized that in the interest of limiting the community spread of COVID-19, private and governmental entities of all types should eliminate large public gatherings and conduct business remotely by electronic means to the greatest extent possible. The Orders provide that governments may meet to conduct essential business by electronic means when the governing body determines that doing so is necessary to protect citizens. Sadly, COVID-19 continues to spread across the state and Williamson County. Therefore, the City has determined that in the interest of protecting the health, safety, and welfare of Tennesseans and the citizens of Brentwood, it is necessary for the Board of Commissioners to meet partially electronically rather than in-person. We have posted the link for public viewing on the City’s website and social media pages, and we have disseminated the same to the media.

Is there any objection by the Commission? Seeing none, we will proceed with our meeting in accordance with the State of Tennessee Governor’s Executive Orders Number 16, 34, and 51."
             
Mayor Little led the Invocation. The Pledge of Allegiance was led by Commissioner Macmillan.
