The next meeting of the Asheville City Council, scheduled for Tuesday, June 28, will mark the return to Council Chamber for the governing body. The meeting will be held in City Hall, 70 Court Plaza on the second floor.
The meetings were moved in 2020 to facilitate sessions under new COVID-19 protocols.
City Council continued to meet, first virtually and later in person, at Harrah’s Cherokee Center- Asheville. The temporary facility allowed the important work of the Council to continue while satisfying new COVID-19 protocols and protecting the public throughout the pandemic.
Now, with facilities and businesses across the country returning to more normalized operations, City Hall will once again host the bi-monthly Council meetings.
During the hiatus, the Council Chamber at City Hall underwent some technical improvements.
Community members will be able to watch City Council sessions stream live with improved quality from camera upgrades.
One of the first topics City Council will undertake in the newly reopened facility is possible adoption of the City Manager’s proposed budget for FY 2022-2023. Council is slated to vote on the issue during its regularly scheduled 5 p.m. meeting on June 28.
The public continues to be welcome to the City Council meetings. A formal agenda will be posted this week.
