[ARCHIVED] Jackson City Council Sept. 8, 2020 Meeting

8-11-20 meeting

Here are highlights from the Sept. 8, 2020 meeting of the Jackson City Council: 

  • The City Council unanimously approved the creation of a Racial Equity Commission and a Department of Diversity, Inclusion and Equity. The new commission and department will help in the City’s efforts to ensure racial equity is a core element of City government and Jackson is a better place to live for everyone.
  • The City Council reviewed a plan to allocate an additional $121,000 in federal funds toward helping residents with unpaid water bills. 
  • Improvements are coming to Loomis Park. The City Council approved funding improvements to the park’s basketball courts with lighting and a new walkway. The council also approved using Community Development Block Grants to pay for a new roof for the Boos Community Center in Loomis Park. 
  • Two streets in the Chalet Terrance neighborhood are being reconstructed by the City. Community Development Block Grants are being used for the street improvements. This housing complex is owned by the City Housing Commission so there are no special assessments. 
  • The Council voted to hire an outside company to conduct performance evaluations of the City’s appointed officials.
  • The City Council approved an ordinance that places special assessment payments on the July property tax bill instead of different payment schedules based on individual projects.
