HARRISBURG, PA - The Board of Game Commissioners has cancelled two upcoming meetings because neither can be attended by a quorum of game commissioners.
The eight-member board currently has a vacancy in the northwest. Due to schedule conflicts with several other commissioners, there was not a quorum of commissioners available to attend the meetings. A meeting quorum is six commissioners.
The first cancelation is a board working group meeting scheduled for Aug. 19 at the agency’s Harrisburg headquarters. Working group meetings allow for an exchange between the Board of Game Commissioners and Game Commission staff ahead of regular quarterly meetings. Working group meetings are open to the public.
The board also cancelled its fourth quarterly meeting, scheduled for Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 in Erie. At quarterly meetings, the board hears public comment and staff reports on the first day and takes up a prepared agenda on the second. Quarterly meetings also are open to the public.
The next meeting of the Board of Game Commissioners is a working group meeting scheduled for Dec. 17 at the agency’s Harrisburg headquarters. The board will hold its first quarterly meeting Jan. 26-28, 2020.
