Update to Emergency Rate of Pay 5-18-20

This morning, I was notified that the Civil Service Commission meeting scheduled for today, May 18, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. was canceled. The reason for the cancellation was that La. R.S. 42:19 requires that all public bodies post a list of meetings at the beginning of each calendar year. This posting is to include the dates, times, and places of such meetings. The Civil Service Commission did that. However, as I am sure everyone reading this is aware, there has been a change in circumstances that required changes to the posted meeting schedule. The law requires that these changes be posted publicly and that is accomplished on the Civil Service website. The Civil Service website was not updated and, therefore, the meeting information was not updated. Therefore, today’s meeting would not have been in compliance with Louisiana’s Open Meetings Laws. I will advise as soon as I learn when the meeting will be rescheduled.
