The Jackson City Council is continuing its regular meeting schedule during the COVID-19 pandemic using an altered format.
The next regularly scheduled meeting is Tuesday, March 31 at 6:30 p.m. Only the Mayor and a small number of employees are allowed in the Council Chambers. Councilmembers and officials will join the meeting using phone/video conference. This is allowed by temporary changes to the Open Meetings Act. Due to the Governor’s "Stay Home, Stay Safe" order, the general public will not be allowed to attend the meeting at City Hall.
Officials encourage residents to watch the broadcast from home and submit comments before the meeting. Live broadcasts of the meetings can be viewed on Comcast Cable Channel 21 or on the City’s Facebook page. A recording of the meeting will be posted on the City’s website following the meeting.
Public comments can be submitted prior to the meeting by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org or placing them in the City Hall lobby drop box. The City Clerk will read them aloud during the meeting for up to 3 minutes each. Please include your name and address and submit by 5:00 p.m. the day of council meetings. Meeting will continue in this manner until further notice.
