Denver City Council cancels tonight’s meeting
With the spread of COVID-19 on the rise once again, and out of concern for the health and safety of the public, City staff and Council members, tonight’s Denver City Council meeting has been canceled.
The number of speakers signing up for Council’s general public comment session that starts at 5 p.m. is drawing larger crowds each week. In addition, three required public hearings were on the agenda for tonight, also expected to draw in many members of the public. To ensure the health and welfare of everyone involved, Council decided to cancel the meeting.
Council has committed to fast-track a virtual public participation process. In addition, council will be scheduling a series of virtual listening sessions. Details for how virtual public participation will move forward will be released as soon as possible. Hearing from constituents during a time of pandemic and historic civil rights movement is a high priority for members of Denver City Council.
As always, council encourages the public to submit written comments via email at email@example.com.
