The Springfield Utility Board plans to hold a non-public executive session pursuant to ORS 40.225, ORS 192.660(2)(f), and ORS 192.660(2)(h); attorney-client privilege; to consider information or records that are exempt by law from public disclosure, including written advice from attorneys; and to consult with counsel concerning legal rights and duties with regard to pending or potential litigation. This meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 12, 2022, and shall commence at 5:00 p.m.

The Board also plans to hold a public special work session if time allows, on Wednesday, January 12, and will commence at approximately 5:30 p.m., following the conclusion of the 5:00 p.m. executive session, and prior to its 6:00 p.m. regularly scheduled Board meeting on January 12. The purpose of this special work session is to discuss infrastructure in downtown Springfield. Members of the public are invited to join this open session. Please note the Board does not hear public input during work sessions. If time does not allow this meeting to occur, then this topic will be discussed during the regular Board meeting, and this special work session will be canceled by Board consensus.

These meetings will be offered remotely and in-person in SUB’s Board Meeting Room located in the Annex Building at 223 A Street in Springfield. To ensure safe public meetings, SUB continues to follow current and up-to-date COVID precautions. Please be aware there may be limited in-person access available during the open special work session and regular Board meeting.

Members of the public may join the 5:30 p.m. special work session and the 6:00 p.m. regular Board meeting remotely via phone or internet. The public may offer comment to the Board at the regular Board meeting and will be prompted to share comment during the Business from the Audience portion of the meeting.
