Interviews will be held Wednesday, Feb. 10 at 6 p.m. at a special council meeting at City Hall, in person.

Following the special meeting, council members voted to resume council meetings in person, with modifications (i.e., required masks and social distancing) for the next regularly scheduled City Council meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 16. The meeting is scheduled a day later than normal due to the Presidents’ Day observance on Monday, Feb. 15.

Councilmember Christopher Smith voiced concern with resuming in-person meetings but the motion passed 3-1.
