Facebook Live Streaming of Chester City Council Meetings to Continue Through End of October

 

(CHESTER, PA) – The city of Chester will continue to live stream its Deliberative and Council Meetings on Facebook through the end of October.

 

While the building is open to the public Monday through Friday from 9:00am – 2:00pm, city officials want to continue mitigation efforts to reduce the spread or exposure of COVID-19 in City Hall. “Our desire is to reevaluate where the infection rate numbers are in October,” said Mayor Thaddeus Kirkland. “We are eager to get back to our normal public meeting structure and will do so when the numbers indicate it is safe for us to do so.”

 

The city of Chester is scheduled to hold four Deliberative and four Council Meetings between the months of September and October. The four scheduled Deliberative Meeting dates have changed and will now take place on the same day that corresponds with the bi-weekly Wednesday Council Meetings.
