JAMESTOWN – The Jamestown City Council will hold its monthly voting session Monday night with a mosty routine agenda.
Most of the items on the agenda focus on small change orders for various city construction projects, along with the lifting of hiring freezes for positions within city government due to those positions being vacated through retirement or resignation.
Meanwhile, City Councilman Andrew Liuzzo (R-At Large) has also said he will make an announcement tonight, regarding the effort to increase communication and discussion between council members and members of the public.
“I will be making an announcement on Monday that will give the public an opportunity to ask and express concerns to State County and city elected officials. It will be an informal and interactive meeting,” the Freshman lawmaker announced on a public Facebook Post over the weekend.
Earlier this month the Jamestown Post-journal wrote an editorial questioning why so few people attend council meetings and make public comments toward the council. Two weeks ago city resident Doug Champ attended the council work session and offered some ideas to improve communication. At the same meeting, Councilman Liuzzo suggested city officials hold an event that involved meeting with city residents in a less formal environment to learn more about issues and concerns within the community.
Monday’s council meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. on the second floor of city hall and is open to the public.
