City Supervisors Meeting 2 October 2020

The city department supervisors met Friday, October 2nd at the Clinton Fire Department. Those in attendance were Chad Brown, Charles Wilson, Jay Murdock, John Willoughby, Richard McCormac, D.L. Webb, Tim Clark, and Jason Hayes.

Chief Webb reported that while September had shown a minimal rise in COVID-19 cases statewide, Van Buren County’s cases seemed to have stabilized. The number of active cases in Van Buren County was at 8. He also reported that the city should have no trouble with receiving 100% reimbursement of CARES Act money due to the city’s police department’s payroll being allowed. Chief Willoughby reminded everyone that his last day would be Wednesday, October 21st and thanked the city for allowing him to serve them over the past few years.

Zoning official Tim Clark said that the Roadkill Cookoff would be Saturday, October 3rd and the Baptist Association would hold its family day on Sunday, October 4th with weather looking to be favorable for both events. Charles Wilson encouraged everyone to attend the carnival at the VBC Fairgrounds on the 8th-10th of October with armbands costing $20 apiece. Jason Hayes had the chili cookoff set for October 10th but was considering changing the date due to the possibility of severe weather. Chief Webb discussed Scare on the Square with everyone in attendance and agreed to discuss it at the City Council meeting on October the 8th with a final decision to be made then.

The meeting concluded with a reminder to stay safe and practice proper distancing when necessary.
