By now, I hope that things in New Rochelle are getting back to something that approximates normalcy. The severity of the Hurricane and then the snowstorm soon thereafter took many of us by surprise, and I hope that you and your loved ones are well.
In response to your question, I’ve not seen any case law that is directly on point, and although it may be unfair, there isn’t anything that I know of that would prevent them from meeting. There are times, in emergencies, when boards have to meet quickly, or have to address issues. We have advised that holidays and weekends are not necessarily contrary to law either – even when many would choose not to attend.
