22 April 2021, Camarillo

Whether you are convinced the shutdown of all government offices and in person services was a complete hoax, or actually enjoy the ability to do business with your local government exclusively with the buffer of a keyboard, things are changing even more the last week of April! 

On April 28th, 2021 the Camarillo City Council will come out of the Zoom environment and begin conducting public meetings in person again. The council meeting will be called to order in the City Council Chambers located at 601 Carmen Drive, Camarillo, CA 93010 at 5PM. The agenda for the meeting will be posted on the City of Camarillo website no later than close of business on the Friday (for this meeting, that will be April 23rd) before each meeting.

Due to easing of restrictions regarding the SARS-2 (COVID-19) virus throughout the County of Ventura, the City of Camarillo has reopened in person(with social distancing) services at their offices effective April 12th, as previously reported in Citizens Journal.

Per Jeffrie Madland of the City of Camarillo, though the meetings will be open to the public looking forward, social distancing will still be in effect, and masking will be required, until such time as a masking requirement is lifted. Seating will be on a first come, first seated basis. There will be accommodations for groups of no more than 3 persons to sit together as a family unit, should that be a need. Once the room has reached capacity, no additional people will be allowed entry. In addition, meetings are broadcast on Local Government Channels, Spectrum Channel 10, Frontier Channel 29, and livestreamed on the City’s YouTube Channel.

Adding to City Council business, the April 22nd at 5PM City Budget Meeting that was cancelled will now be held after the City Council Meeting on April 28th. The plan is to start the Budget Meeting immediately after the City Council adjourns, at approximately 730 PM, per the City Clerk staff.

The City strongly encourages the community to continue to take advantage of the City’s online , phone  (805) 388-5307 and email [email protected] options for any communications and business with the City of Camarillo.

Are they trying to minimize budget meeting audience?
