Suffolk City Council will conduct their regularly scheduled City Council Meeting on Wednesday, July 1, 2020, however, the start time will be 6 p.m. instead of 7 p.m. in City Council Chamber located inside Suffolk City Hall, 442 West Washington Street. The Work Session will begin at 4 p.m.
While these certainly remain trying times for all of our citizens, the business of local government must continue so that the needs of all citizens can be met now and in the future. While we are all fully aware of the health concerns surrounding COVID-19, the adherence of requirements by law for public meetings must still be followed. One of those requirements is that the meeting must be advertised as being open to the public. It is of course at the public’s discretion as to whether they wish to attend.
Suffolk City Hall will be accessible to the public for this limited purpose ONLY. Interested parties should arrive at City Hall as early as possible due to less available seating due to social distancing requirements. Members of City Council and City Staff that will be in attendance during the Council Meeting will also adhere to all social distancing recommendations.
Additionally, in keeping with the Governor’s recent Executive Order and CDC recommendations, face coverings will be required for this public indoor setting to help contain the spread of the novel coronavirus. Staff have and will continue to increase sanitizing of common surfaces.
The meeting will be aired live on the Suffolk Municipal Channel (Spectrum Channel 190) and live streamed at http://suffolkva.granicus.com/MediaPlayer.php?publish_id=2 so that the public is aware of all actions taken.
