Virtual Meetings During COVID-19 Outbreak

While in a local emergency under Minnesota Statute, section 12.37, the Golden Valley City HRA will conduct its meetings virtually via Cisco Webex. Meetings will be televised and webcast live (see box at upper right). Meeting instructions will be available here when the agenda is posted.
