Social distancing mandates are forcing local government units to adjust how the business will get done in April.
For the DeWitt County Board, not everything will get adjust because Board Chair David Newberg explains they can still hold committee meetings and be under the 10-person gathering limit, however, the County Board meetings will have to adjust.
According to Tim Followell, City Administrator for the City of Clinton, the City Council is going to try out a conference call style meeting. He indicates City Council meetings push the 10-person in a gathering limit so this will allow them to still conduct meetings.
Followell notes the City Council is going to limit their agenda to needed items only until these social distancing restrictions are lifted. He points out there are some crucial business items the Council will be taking up next Monday, April 6.
Both assure the public they will continue to take care of the business of the City and County and make sure things move along during a time that is new for everyone.
