Dodgeville City Council reschedules in person meeting for June 4
In unexpected circumstances, Dodgeville City Council had to make a date change to when it will have its first common council meeting in June.
Approximately 20 people were in attendance on Tuesday night for the virtual Zoom common council meeting for a matter of 10 minutes. Then Mayor Todd Novak announced to council members and meeting attendees that they would have to meet at a later time.
The City of Dodgeville sent out a Facebook message Tuesday night stating "due to technical difficulties with Zoom the City of Dodgeville Council Meeting had to be postponed for this evening and will reconvene Thursday, June 4th at 5:30 pm in person at City Hall."
Novak further explained that the link directed for the Zoom meeting malfunctioned at the last minute, thus no longer being a duly published notice for the meeting. By state statute, public meeting notices must be posted 24 hours in advance.
"That was why we had to cancel the meeting," Novak stated.
This will be an in person meeting and the public is welcome to attend. Social distancing will be practiced at the meeting, and chairs will be spread out in the common council room.
Thursday's agenda will include discussion on a COVID-19 update, the City of Dodgeville's City Hall reopening plan, the 2020 Comer Pool Opening, and a discussion on 2020 City Recreation Summer Programs.
In other City of Dodgeville announcements, Farmers Appreciation Day became another event on a long list of events canceled due to the pandemic. Each year the city holds fireworks during the weekend event and plans to continue the occasion. Fireworks are scheduled for Saturday July 11. Stay tuned for further updates.
