CERTIFICATION OF MEETING AGENDA
In accordance with Louisiana Revised Statute 42:17.1, this notice shall serve as certification that the agenda of the upcoming meeting 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 Special Meeting of the Board of Commissioners meeting on June 1, 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 Build Baton Rouge Board of Commissioners’ meeting on Tuesday, June 1, at 3:30 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 28, 2021.
