Florida moves into PHASE 3 Covid-19 Transition Plan on Public Meetings


Under Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' plan for the state's recovery from COVID-19, a new Executive Order 20-246 was issued to assist Floridians with the transition into PHASE 3, by providing local government bodies with an additional (one-month) extension period to conduct all public meetings virtually and/or by telephonic means.

Local governmental bodies under this Executive Oder, unless otherwise posted, shall be required to begin holding ALL public meetings "In person" effective November 1, 2020.

The Winter Haven Housing Authority's regularly scheduled Board of Commissioner meetings are held the 4th Thursday of each month, unless otherwise posted.

Due to the Thanksgiving Holiday, the November Board meeting will be held on Thursday, Nov. 19, 2020 at 5:30 p.m. at the WHHA Administrative Offices, 2653 Avenue C S.W., Winter Haven, Florida.

If a person decides to appeal any decision made by the Commission with respect to any matter considered at such meeting or hearing of the Authority, they will need a record of the proceedings, and that, for such purpose, they may need to ensure that a verbatim record of proceedings is made which record includes the testimony and evidence upon which the appeal is to be based.
