Tip o’ the hat to President Waldron for filling us in on the upcoming Council meeting in timely fashion.
We currently are still planning on having our meeting on Tuesday. Third class city code requires we have two physical meetings per month that are open to the public. The YouTube stream will be up and running. As long as we have at least 4 members of Council and a clerk the meeting can go on. We are doing our best to balance public safety and accessibility. We have eliminated our public speaking sign-in sheet but will have full public comment.
As of now, Director of Emergency Management Bob Novatnack and Health Bureau Director Kristen Wenrich will be at the meeting to give Council an update of the efforts the City is taking to respond to Covid-19.
The Creek Road rezoning has been pulled from the agenda by the applicant. We are also in discussion to postpone the short term lodging ordinance and zoning text amendment. This action would require re-advertising and starting the process over. We are working towards finding the balance of accessibility and safety. During such trying and unsure times Council, the Clerks, and all the city Administration are considering all prudent actions to remain operational, while minimizing risk and potential exposure to all residents and employees of the City.
