Jackson City Council March 23 Virtual Meeting

Jackson City Council 3-23-20 meeting

The Jackson City Council held a virtual meeting on Tuesday, March 23. Here are highlights from the meeting. 

  • Virtual meetings will continue until further notice. The City Council approved a resolution that allows the City Council and other boards/commissions to meet virtually while the City is under the COVID-19 Local State of Emergency. This resolution allows virtual meetings to continue if the State of Michigan does not extend virtual meeting guidelines past March 31, 2021. 
  • The City Council approved a resolution that allows the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) to replace the E. Washington Avenue bridge over the Grand River. The bridge is 36 years old and is in a deteriorating condition. MDOT is funding the bridge replacement. 
  • Several spring and summer events, such as the annual Juneteenth Celebration, were approved by the City Council contingent on Jackson's COVID-19 outlook when the events are held. 
  • Mowing contracts were awarded by the Council to two landscaping companies to cut grass on City-owned property and private property with grass violations. 
  • The council voted to accept reports from the Engineering Division for planned infrastructure improvement projects on Cooley Place and E. Biddle Street. 

A recording of the March 23 virtual City Council meeting is available on this page.
