THIS IS AN ARCHIVED NEWS STORY FROM 2020 AND THE CONTENTS OF THIS ARTICLE MAY NO LONGER APPLY. FOR THE LATEST COMMUNITY NEWS CLICK HERE.

To protect the health and safety of our residents, Councilmembers and staff, the April 21 City Council meeting will be held via Zoom video conference. Members of the public will still have a chance to listen, watch and participate. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 21.

Under new policy direction from the state, online meetings are still permitted, however, Cities can only conduct business that is considered essentially urgent or related to the COVID-19 response. That's reflected in what is a relatively short agenda for April 21. 

During the meeting, City Manager Rob Wyman will offer the latest updates on the City's COVID-19 response. Councilmembers will also review two Proclamations: One that declares April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month and another that condemns COVID-19-related harassment and racial bias. You can view the full meeting agenda packet here.
