JBWD Board of Commissioners meetings during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Juniper Beach Water District (JBWD) holds its monthly Board of Commissioners meeting on the third Thursday of each month. JBWD plans to hold its meetings during this COVID-19 pandemic. It will be done with needed precautions and safety measures in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic.

It is necessary for the JBWD Board of Commissioners to hold its monthly meetings so they may approve invoices and vouchers for payment and receive updates to projects or activities that may require board approval.

JBWD will be taking the following precautions and actions following suggestions and guidelines of the CDC and Island County Health Department.

  • Most monthly meetings have less than 8 persons in attendance. JBWD will only hold in person meeting of 8 persons or less. If more than 8 attendees arrive for a scheduled meeting, the Board President will adjourn the meeting and make plans to hold the meeting via teleconference, webinar or online conferencing method.

  • During the meeting, board members and attendees will wear mask and maintain social distancing by maintaining a distance of six feet from others.

  • Sanitizing of the meeting place will take place within 12 hours of the scheduled meeting and closure of the sanitized facility from the time of sanitizing until the 30 minutes prior to the beginning of meeting.

  • Commissioners who will be attending the meeting will be asked to take their temperature within 60 minutes of attendance. They will be asked to report this during roll call at the beginning of the meeting.

  • Disinfecting of commonly used meeting materials and surfaces.
