City of Malibu to Return to Virtual-Only City Council Meetings on May 23
The Malibu City Council voted on April 26 to return to holding City Council, Commission, Committee and Board meetings via Zoom only, starting May 23, 2022, after hearing concerns from the community about ongoing COVID-19 conditions in LA County.
The City Council had voted on March 28 to resume in-person City Council meetings starting May 9, 2022, and directed the City’s Commissions, Committees and Boards to return to in-person meetings at their next regular meeting after May 9.
“If there is one thing that the pandemic has taught us, it is that we must be ready to change gears at any moment, and I am proud of how Malibu has adapted to be able to keep providing services to the community throughout the pandemic,” said Mayor Paul Grisanti. “We are all eager to return to in-person meetings, but safety must come first.”
Because of noticing deadlines, the May 9, 2022 City Council meeting will take place in-person at City Hall, as was scheduled and announced. The Planning Commission will also meet in-person at City Hall on May 16, 2022.
The May 23 City Council meeting, as well as all other subsequent public meetings, will continue to be held remotely only, via Zoom, with the same instructions and procedures for participation and public comment, until further notice.
All public meeting agendas are posted online.
