Council Meeting for Wednesday, April 15, 2020, at 7:00 p.m.  There is no Work Session on Wednesday, April15, 2020.  During these uncertain times,
the business of local government must continue so that the needs of allcitizens can be met now and in the future.

On March 12, 2020, Governor Ralph Northam declared a State of Emergency for the Commonwealth of Virginia due to the rapid spread of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Following that declaration, City Manager Patrick Roberts declared the City of Suffolk to be in a State of Emergency. Because of the catastrophic nature of the declared emergency, it is impractical and unsafe to assemble a quorum of City Council in a single location.  In accordance with the Code of Virginia and Suffolk City Code, this Emergency Meeting of Suffolk City Council will be held via video and video conference. Council Members will be individually participating electronically from other City facilities.  

The Meeting will be aired live on the Suffolk Municipal Channel (Spectrum Channel 190) and live streamed at so that the public is aware of all actions taken.
