In an effort to comply with the current statewide stay-at-home order, The City of Zachary will be conducting virtual City Council Meetings via Zoom meeting app. Zoom is a digital conferencing service that will allow meetings to be broadcast on the internet to devices such as computers or tablets. The next regularly scheduled meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 14th at 6:30 p.m. The public will be able to view the meetings live on Facebook @ The City of Zachary. You can find the agenda on the City of Zachary Website at https://www.cityofzachary.org/uploads/files/04-14-20_Agenda_for_City_Council_Meeting.pdf
If you have an item on the agenda that you feel needs your attendance in person at the Council Meeting, there will be social distancing guidelines that you must adhere to. Security will be positioned at the entrance of the Council Chambers, allowing only one person at a time when your item is up for discussion. If you are showing any symptoms of illness, do not come to City Hall. This policy will be strictly enforced due to the potential spread of the coronavirus that has closed schools, businesses and other agencies.
If you choose not to attend the Council Meeting, but wish to make a comment on a specific agenda item prior to the council meeting, you may email City Attorney, John Hopewell at firstname.lastname@example.org. This method of communication is highly encouraged. Emails will be accepted beginning at 2 p.m. on the day of the meeting, Tuesday, April 14th. Your comments will be officially read during the meeting and discussed by the Council Members who will be attending the meeting via Zoom.
"These meetings of government bodies need to continue to be able to make important decisions and keep the regular operations of city government functioning. The City intends to conduct all necessary additional public meetings such as Planning & Zoning or other public bodies in the same manner,” says Mayor David Amrhein.
