Following the City Council meeting on April 15, the Council chamber will close for about two months. During that time, the City Council and Planning Commission will meet at the city's
Maintenance and Operations Center (MOC). Per the current schedule, meetings will resume at City Hall by June 10.

The short-term move will clear the way for some significant improvements to the city's emergency management and audio-visual capabilities in the Council chamber and an adjoining conference room. The MOC is located in the northeast quadrant of the city at 1801 244th Ave. N.E., a short distance north of Northeast Eighth Street. As always, meetings will be open to the public.
