Special City Council Meeting to be Held Tuesday, Feb. 24

Wednesday, February 18, 2015

​Vice Mayor Louis R. Jones and Councilmembers Barbara Henley and Jim Wood have called a special meeting of the City Council for Tuesday, Feb. 24. The informal session will start at 3 p.m. in the City Council Conference Room. The formal session will start at 6 p.m. in the City Council Chamber.


The special meeting was called because yesterday’s City Council meeting was canceled, due to the snowstorm. Yesterday’s meeting was scheduled to include several briefings, public hearings (including one on proposed changes to a tax-relief program for elderly and disabled residents), ordinances, resolutions, planning items and appointments.


The meeting next week on Feb. 24 will include some of the items previously scheduled for yesterday’s meeting, including the tax-relief public hearing. The planning items must be re-advertised and will be heard at a later date.


Ordinarily, the City Council holds workshop meetings on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month, with no formal votes. The Feb. 24 meeting was originally scheduled as a workshop. It was changed to a formal meeting so some of the items from yesterday’s City Council meeting can be considered.


The Feb. 24 meeting agenda is online here.
