Jackson City Council 4-14-20

The Jackson City Council held its third virtual meeting during the COVID-19 crisis. Here are a few highlights from their meeting on Tuesday, April 14.

-The council formally accepted the resignation of Fifth Ward Councilmember Kelsey Heck. The City Charter says council vacancies are to be filled by council appointment. The council voted ask the Charter Review Committee to propose changes to the charter to allow elections to fill council vacancies. Any change to the charter has to be approved by voters. The council discussed having a charter amendment for voters to consider for the Nov. 2020 election.

-Until changes to the charter can be made, the council is moving forward with an appointment to fill the vacant Fifth Ward seat. The council voted to receive applications for interview candidates until May 12, with a May 26 date for council interviews. Candidates must be registered voters who have a primary residence in the Fifth Ward.

-The council approved compensation for Interim City Manager Jonathan Greene. He was hired as the interim manager in February.

-The council approved recommendations to consider special assessments for five infrastructure improvement projects.

The next council meeting is Tuesday, April 28.
