* As a result of the current COVID-19 virus epidemic emergency, the convening at one location of a quorum of the PGMUD Board is difficult or impossible. Therefore, the PGMUD Board will conduct this meeting by telephone conference call rather than by physical quorum pursuant to Texas Government Code Sec. 551.125 and guidance of the Governor of the State of Texas.

Members of the public are entitled to participate and address the PGMUD Board during the

telephonic meeting. In all respects, this meeting will be open to the public and compliant with
