JAMESTOWN – The Jamestown City Council will be meeting Monday night and Jamestown Mayor Sam Teresi will be on hand to deliver his 2018 State of the City address.
Under the city charter, the mayor of the city is required to give the council an annual update on the state of the city.
In past years mayor Teresi has used the message as an opportunity to highlight efficiency and cost-saving measures the city has under taken, as well as give some insight into what major projects the city will be focusing on in the coming year.
Just like the past two years, the mayor will likely not verbally delivery the address and will instead deliver copies of the message to each city council member along with the local media.
Copies will also be made available on the city website, in the mayors office of city hall, and at the Prendergast Library.
While the mayor’s state of the city will be the highlight of the January council meeting, there will be other items on the agenda.
City officials will be voting on Phase 1 repair costs for the Jamestown Police Department following the floods that happened this fall during the renovations to Tracy Plaza.
The first work will be done to the public entrance area, the command center and the squad room and will address new ceilings and flooring, and changing damaged doors.
The cost of the repairs will likely be covered by the contractor hired to do the work.
Monday’s council meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. in the council chambers of city hall. It is open to the public. In addition, a work session will begin at 7 p.m. in the mayor’s conference room. That meeting is also open to the public.
