GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) -One of eastern Carolina’s largest cities will resume in-person public meetings soon.

The Greenville City Council will begin meeting in-person again starting in August.

The council doesn’t meet in July so August will be the first in-person public meeting since last year.

All of the city’s other boards and committees will also resume in-person gatherings as well.

City hall and other buildings are expected to resume normal operations in July.

Spokesman Brock Letchworth says council meetings should run as normal, but if large crowds are expected some social distancing measures could be implemented. He says, “If we feel we are going to have a larger in-person crowd will have to make some accommodations to not exclude anyone from having an opportunity to provide input or participate in the meeting, but will need to maybe shuffle people in and out and have a separate viewing area.”

The Pitt County Board of Commissioners will begin meeting in-person in July.

Those meetings will be in the auditorium at the agricultural center.
