Rosenberg City Council members have been meeting inside the council chambers for less than a month since the COVID-19 pandemic shut down the city.
But on Tuesday, council members will hold the special city council meeting and subsequent workshop meeting via teleconference.
“There will not be a meeting at City Hall to physically attend, but the public can attend virtually,” Communications Director Tanya Kveton told The Herald on Monday.
“With the rising COVID-19 count in the community, the city felt it was in the best interest of everyone involved to hold the meeting via video conference.”
According to Kveton, numbers skyrocketed from 61-80 positive cases on Friday afternoon.
Kveton said there are no positive cases within City Hall.
The special city council meeting will begin at 6:15 p.m. and the workshop meeting will begin immediately after.
Citizens can still ask questions via letters, telephone or email.

Meetings can be watched live on the city’s YouTube Channel “RosenbergTXGov,” on the city’s website at www.rosenbergtx.gov/tv, and on Comcast Channel 16 for residents within the city limits.
