In accordance with Louisiana Revised Statute 42:17.1, this notice shall serve as certification that the agenda of the upcoming meeting of the EBRCDE of Build Baton Rouge (“The Authority”) is limited to matters that if they are delayed will cause curtailment of vital public services through delay of the Authority’s operations in accordance with Louisiana Revised Statute 33:4720.151 (“Enabling Legislation”).

Pursuant to R.S. 42:17.1(A), The Authority will provide for attendance at its essential EBRCDE LLC Board of Commissioners meeting on May 21, 2021, via video conference because by Executive Proclamation 67 JBE 2021, the Governor has declared a state of emergency involving East Baton Rouge Parish, the jurisdiction of the Authority, and the nature of the emergency would cause an ordinary meeting of the Authority to be detrimental to the health of the public. 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 the Authority’s Enabling Legislation.

Considering the foregoing, the EBRCDE LLC Board of Commissioners’ meeting on Friday, May 21, at 1:00 p.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 May 19, 2021.
