Mattawa opens council chambers’ doors to public meetings

Beginning this evening, Mattawa is opening the doors to city council meetings, and the public is welcome to walk on through and have a seat. Six feet apart, of course.

And once comfortably seated six feet from your neighbour, “face coverings can be removed,” the town explained in a recent release.

Just ensure “distancing can be maintained,” the town emphasized, adding that attendees “will be required to self screen upon entry” for symptoms, and will also be required to provide contact information.

“Face coverings are mandatory” while entering and completing the sign-in process.

Council holds regular meetings on the second and fourth Monday of each month at seven p.m. Tonight’s meeting makes up for yesterday’s holiday closure.

Meetings occur at the Town Hall, within the Dr. S.F. Monestime council chambers.

For those who prefer to savour their council meetings from the comforts of home, participating via teleconference is still an option.
