City Council president cancels tonight’s meeting

City Council President Bill Hall made a decision to cancel tonight’s council meeting.

He said there was nothing to act on, with exception of a certificate-of-appropriateness request.

He said it made little sense to have an invocation and flag salute and adjourn the meeting.

Another reason for postponing the meeting: “Most of the administration is on vacation,” he said.

Hall said it was not that unusual to cancel a council meeting during this month.

Other council members were notified by email, according to city clerk Janice Frank.

The next council meeting is 7:30 p.m. Aug. 29.
