City returns to in-person meetings

By Brandi Makuski

The City of Stevens Point has resumed public, in-person meetings.

After more than a year of all virtual meetings held via Zoom, Mayor Mike Wiza welcomed about a dozen people, including Commissioners, to “our first official face-to-face meeting” since the city suspended in-person meetings following the declaration of a public health emergency last year.

The city will continue to follow guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control, Wiza said, and limit capacity in the meeting room.

“If you are fully vaccinated you are not required to wear a mask, they are optional, however,r if you are not yet fully vaccinated, we ask you continue to wear your mask,” Wiza said.

All public meetings are posted on the city’s website and will continue to be offered virtually for the foreseeable future. Residents who attend virtually can still participate, either via Zoom video conferencing or telephone.

The next set of public meetings will be on June 14, with the Board of Water and Sewerage Commissioners, Airport Commission, Transportation Commission, and the standing committee meetings of the Personnel, Board of Public Works, Public Policy and General Government, and Finance committee meetings.

Standing committee meetings are always held on the second Monday of each month, followed by the full City Council on the third Monday. For information on times, locations, and agenda topics, find the corresponding agenda at stevenspoint.com.
