During an emergency meeting this afternoon of the Hudson County Board of Commissioners, a resolution was adopted to temporarily hold all future meetings remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The measure, which was brought to the Board by Chairman Anthony Vainieri, was sponsored as a whole by the Board, although there appeared to be some confusion, as Commissioner Fanny Cedeno voted against the resolution, which passed 8-1. Hudson TV reached out to Commissioner Cedeno, but she did not respond by the time this story was published.
Until further notice, according to the resolution, all future meetings of the County Commissioners will be held virtually “for the public safety and security of county employees and officials.”
Chairman Vainieri is also directing the Public Safety Committee to meet with the Hudson County Sheriff’s Department to devise a strategy to keep county employees safe in light of last week’s riot at the United States Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.
