BrightRidge to conduct board meetings remotely

Contributed • Mar 25, 2020 at 12:00 AM

Operating under authority of a measure signed Gov. Bill Lee, BrightRidge will now conduct all its board meetings electronically through the duration of the executive order.

BrightRidge, organized as a public political subdivision of the state of Tennessee, will conduct its meetings by conference call beginning March 24 at 4:15 p.m.

As required by the order, a full audio recording of the meeting will be posted at BrightRidge.com under the “Community” section along with a meeting agenda within 48 hours of the meeting.

The media is being offered the opportunity to listen live, but all follow-up questions should be directed to the BrightRidge public affairs office after the meeting is concluded. Members of the public should also direct any questions to the public affairs office.

These measures are temporarily adopted by the BrightRidge board to protect the health, safety and welfare of the public, staff and board members in response to the  novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

BrightRidge is committed to full transparency and will continue to review the viability of other potential virtual meeting venues moving forward, with authority to conduct meetings electronically set to expire May 18, unless renewed.

BrightRidge continues to respect the open meetings and open records laws and will work diligently to continue the free flow of information as protected under the Tennessee Constitution and the Tennessee Open Meetings Act.
