Executive Order on Electronic Public Meetings
Governor Gary Herbert issued an executive order relaxing some of the requirements of Title 52, Chapter 4, Open and Public Meetings Act to allow for more electronic public meetings. The OPMA currently allows public bodies to hold electronic meetings but requires that the public body still have an “anchor location”.
