Cook County Board of Commissioners Meeting - April 23, 2020
Because of State COVID-19 guidelines restricting larger meetings, the Board held its April meeting via a virtual media platform. Public Speakers were allowed to submit up to three-minute comments which were read by the Secretary of the Board. Of the 36 comments submitted, 23 dealt with the issue of COVID-19 safety within the Jail and Juvenile Detention Center. Another 7, primarily from suburban mayors and first responders, were supporting the sharing of addresses of COVID-19 residents. Public Comments accounted for 90 minutes of the 3½ hour meeting.
