In accordance with Executive Proclamations JBE 2020-30 and 2020-33, issued by Governor John Bel Edwards on March 16, 2020 and March 22, 2020, respectively, this notice shall serve as the certification of the inability of Build Baton Rouge (“The Authority”) to otherwise operate in accordance with the Louisiana Open Meetings Law due to a lack of a quorum as a result of the COVID-19 public health emergency.

Pursuant to Section 4 of JBE 2020-30, The Authority will provide for attendance at its essential Board of Commissioners meeting on January 26, 2021, via video conference because it is unable to obtain a quorum (3 of 5 members). In addition, under Section 2 of JBE 2020-33, Governor Edwards ordered all public gatherings of ten (10) or more people to be suspended or postponed. The Authority is a special district created pursuant to Article VI, Section 19 of the Constitution of Louisiana and political subdivision of the State as defined in Article VI, Section 44 of the Constitution of Louisiana. It is essential for The Authority, acting through its Board, to continue to operate in accordance to its rights, powers, privileges and immunities accorded by the laws and the Constitution of Louisiana to political subdivisions of the State, subject to the limitations provided in Louisiana Revised Statute 33:4720.151 (Enabling Legislation).

Considering the foregoing, and in accordance with Proclamation Numbers JBE 2020-30 and JBE 2020-33, the Build Baton Rouge Board of Commissioners’ meeting on Tuesday, January 26, 2021, at 9:00 a.m. will be held via video conference and in a manner that allows for observation and input by members of the public, as set forth in the Notice posted on January 22, 2021.

Christopher J. Tyson, President and CEO Build Baton Rouge
