City Supervisors Meeting 16 Sept 2020

City supervisors met Wednesday, September 16th at the Clinton Fire Station. Those present were Richard McCormac, D.L. Webb, Chad Brown, Tim Clark, Charles Wilson, Jay Murdock, John Willoughby, and Jay Chalk.

Chief Webb reported that the active cases of COVID-19 had dropped to 17. He also reminded all department heads to submit all of their COVID-19 related expenses to the Recorder/Treasurer by Friday. FEMA will reimburse the city 75% of expenditures including city-related cost for cleaning and disinfectant supplies, purchase of PPE’s, advertisement, and documented sick leave due to COVID-19. Clinton School Superintendent Jay Chalk said that school would be starting Monday, Sept. 21 with the option of on-campus or virtual learning. Charles Wilson said that the street repair in front of the high school would be completed by that date. He also added that trash pickup would take place the week of the 21st-25th and reminded everyone of the importance of moderation in the quantity of debris placed for pick up. He added that burning when possible will help accelerate the city’s effort in their cleanup.

Tim Clark said that he planned to meet with several members of the Hispanic community later in the week regarding the 2020 Census and encouraged everyone to fill out their forms and asked others to encourage everyone they know to do the same.

Chief Webb said that Scare on the Square is still being decided upon, but some form of a Halloween celebration will take place. He said that as time gets closer, a decision will be made. Chad Brown said that governor and first lady’s presence at the Children’s Advocacy Alliance opening went extremely well, and the facility will be an excellent asset for our county. Chief John Willoughby again thanked the citizens of Clinton for allowing him to serve them over the past several years and reminded everyone that he’s just a phone call away. The meeting concluded with the supervisors agreeing to meet every two weeks from now until year’s end unless the situation changes. Chief Webb again thanked for the departments for their preparedness and diligence during the past few months and reminded them of the Friday deadline for all reimbursements.

Again, please contact City Hall with any concerns or suggestions, and thank you for your efforts throughout all of 2020.

Sincerely,

Mayor Richard McCormac
