“Please take notice that a Board of Directors meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 29th, 2021 at 5:30 PM,” RIOC posted yesterday.
“Due to public health concerns and as authorized by Chapter 417 of the Laws of New York of 2021, this meeting will be conducted via videoconference.”

So, we’re back to Zoom on line.
Important note: RIOC’s board welcomes public comment before every official meeting. Comments, positive, negative or anywhere between, will be read by an official instead of spoken in person. Post your comments by using this link.
