Extraordinary Council Meeting

Tonight, we had an Extraordinary Council Meeting to discuss a post-COVID recovery plan for the City.

We are in a position where we’ve flattened the curve, and that’s been a remarkable achievement.

However, it’s important that we look at this recovery plan from a number of different perspectives.

We can’t face an anticipated recovery until we know if there’s going to be a second wave.

We don’t know where we are heading, and we don’t know what’s going to happen until we see more social distancing measures removed, and increased interaction of people and services.

I welcome this recovery plan, but its timing is going to be crucial.

You can read the motion that was passed unanimously below. If you have any questions, comments or concerns about this plan please email [email protected]
