CHENEY -- The City Council and Cheney School District board of directors will hold their regularly scheduled meetings this week, but will do so without public access due to directives from Gov. Jay Inslee prohibiting large gatherings and asking Washington residents to practice social distancing as a measure to hopefully slow the spread of COVID-19.

Instead, to allow public access to the meetings, the council and school board will use online services to allow citizens to view and listen to the proceedings. The Cheney council will hold their meeting Tuesday night, March 24, beginning at 6 p.m. in the City Hall Council Chambers and on Zoom at the following link:

For those wanting an agenda, which also carries the link, it is viewable at the city's website.

The school board will also utilize and online link, but had not released the link as of press time.
