SHELLEY — In an effort to follow social distancing guidelines, the Shelley City Council has decided to hold their meetings virtually.
Starting Tuesday, Dec. 8, the Shelley City Council will hold its meetings over Zoom. Shelley Mayor Stacey Pascoe said he hopes they will only have to hold virtual meetings for a couple of months.
“The governor hasn’t said we have to do it but they’re trying to get us to social distance more so we thought ‘okay well we’ll go back to Zoom meetings for a couple of months and then hopefully it’ll be over with,'” Pascoe told Community Pioneer.
Idaho reverted back to Stage 2 of the state’s COVID-19 reopening plan on Nov. 14. That means gatherings are limited to a maximum of 10 people. Read the Stage 2 order here.
“I personally don’t like the zoom meetings. I’d rather have people there so we can interact with people. But, I understand why we did: For safety reasons,” Pascoe said.
Tuesday’s City Council meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. People are welcome to join the Zoom meeting and can do so by clicking here.
Community Pioneer will also stream the meeting live to the Community Pioneer Facebook page.
