Changes to City Council Agenda Items
As you know, we’re all going through a time of change and social distancing as we try to flatten the curve of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Prior to the measures taken against COVID-19, our appeal was slated to be on the City Council agenda for Tuesday, March 31st. The City Council is limiting public access to meetings to be in accordance with guidelines provided by the CDC and Alabama Department of Public Health.
During this time, the Council intends to hold-over any agenda items that may be of particular interest to the public in order to ensure they have the opportunity to weigh in on them. (Read full statement below regarding City Council, sent by the City of Mobile via email on March 17, 2020).
When we find out a new date, and any procedural changes for this meeting, we will let you know via newsletter and social channels.
We’re keeping all our neighbors in our thoughts during this time of uncertainty.

The Mobile City Council is conducting its regularly scheduled meetings at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday in the Auditorium in Government Plaza. Council meetings are live streamed on the City’s website at www.cityofmobile.org.
The pre-council meeting will also continue at 9:00 a.m. but those meetings have moved to the Auditorium as well.
In accordance with the guidance provided by the Alabama Department of Public Health, the Council is limiting access both these meetings. During this time, the Council intends to hold-over any agenda items that may be of particular interest to the public in order to ensure they have the opportunity to weigh in on them.
“Our focus is on ensuring the critical needs of our citizens continue to be met,” said Council Vice President C.J. Small. “It is clear we are all going to have to make some adjustments but by doing that and working together, we will get through this and be stronger.”
The special ad-hoc committee meeting scheduled for Tuesday to discuss the proposal to withdraw city services from the police jurisdiction was postponed.
