(June 19, 2020) Ocean City Council meetings will resume in-person beginning next Tuesday, June 23. 

“While we successfully held dozens of virtual meetings, we are looking forward to connecting in-person and having face-to-face conversations about public business,” City Clerk Diana Chavis said. 

The meetings will take on a hybrid format, with Councilman Dennis Dare participating via Zoom. 

Members of the public who do not feel comfortable attending the meetings may tune in via live stream on the city’s meeting portal and email comments to Chavis. 

Those wishing to attend meetings must follow a set of protocol before entering City Hall on Third Street. 

Attendees will enter the building via the Third Street south end entrance near the gazebo. Each attendee must sign in with his or her name, address and contact information. Following the sign, each person will receive a temperature check and then complete and sign a wellness monitoring form. 

All councilmembers and attendees will be socially distance, and hand sanitizer will be available. 

Facemasks and coverings are optional. 

Unlike pre-coronavirus meetings, attendees will not be able to distribute documents to the mayor and council, and instead may be handed to, or ideally, forwarded to the city clerk electronically. 

To submit a comment or documents email Chavis at dchavis@oceancitymd.gov
