JAMESTOWN – The Jamestown City Council will hold its monthly voting session tonight in City Hall. Among the items to be acted is the accepting of a $14,000 grant from the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation for the purpose of funding the Physician Recruitment Project through the Strategic Planning and Partnership Program.
The council will also act on a resolution dealing with the final draft of the city’s 2012 Annual Action Plan – which includes the specific CDBG and HOME funding request that will be send to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Councilman Steve Szwejbka may also introduce a motion that would show the city council supports an effort in the state legislature to pass legislation involving drug-testing for residents who receive social service benefits. Szwejbka had initially brought up the motion during last week’s work session but it did not receive enough votes to meet full committee approval.
Tonight’s council voting session begins at 7:30 p.m. in the council chambers on the second floor of city hall. A work session will be held at 7 p.m. on the fourth floor of the Mayors Conference room. Both are open to the public.
