Jackson City Council April 28, 2020 meeting

Council 4-28-20 meeting

The Jackson City Council held their fourth virtual meeting of the COVID-19 pandemic on April 28, 2020. 

Here are highlights from the meeting: 

-The council approved Hearings of Necessity for five infrastructure improvement projects. The special tax assessments for the improvements will be reviewed at an upcoming council meeting. 

-The council unanimously decided to postpone the approval of several community events planned for this spring and summer until their next meeting on May 12. The events awaiting approval are the fireworks displays at the Cascades Park that celebrate Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day, including the planned Memorial Day Parade in Jackson. Councilmembers expressed concern about allowing these events to continue during the COVID-19 pandemic. The fireworks displays are organized by the Jackson County Parks Department, but needs approval from City government. The councilmembers also voted to make event organizers of any future events to include COVID-19 mitigation strategies when applying for an event permit. 

-Other council business included finalizing changes to the Noxious Weed Ordinance and entering into a contract with a company that will reduce energy usage at City Hall. 

The regularly scheduled meeting is Tuesday, May 12.
