Quincy City Council to Open Up And Return to Chambers Tonight
As Illinois enters into Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan, the City of Quincy has relaxed some of the COVID-19 restrictions for their meetings of the Quincy City Council and our other committees. In doing so, the public is again welcomed, with some restrictions, to attend the council meetings beginning with tonight’s meeting at 7 p.m. at City Hall. The following modifications will be implemented to ensure there will be a safe environment for all:
- Remote participation will end beginning tonight. The City Council Chambers have been rearranged to allow for tiered seating for aldermen and committee members.
- With the maximum number of participants being capped at 50, there will be 15 open seats available to those who wish to attend. Those who wish to attend must register with the City Clerk by 12 noon the day of each meeting including tonight. They can do so by calling 217-228-4510 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Priority will be given to those who have business before the council or committee. The City will make attempts to increase the amount of open seats by limiting attendance of department heads to only those who have business before the council.
- All attendees are requested to wear a mask while entering City Hall. The mask may be removed when seated.
Members of the public will need to give their name at the door to be able to enter City Hall. It is requested that members of the public proceed to their marked seating in the Council Chambers rather than congregate in the hallways prior to and after the conclusion of each meeting.
