City council meeting moved to Nov. 22

Council members will revisit agenda items that were discussed during the month’s first meeting.

A Langley City Council meeting that was cancelled due to the island-wide power outage has been rescheduled for next week.

The meeting is set for 5:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 22.

Council members will revisit a series of agenda items that were discussed during the month’s first council meeting, including the official formation of the Dismantling Systemic Racism Advisory Committee and the city’s fee schedule for 2022.

Monica Felici, the city’s finance director, will review an updated version of the city’s budget for next year.

In addition, the chairpersons for the Parks and Open Space Commission and the Planning Advisory Board will present yearly updates on their areas of expertise.

Councilmember Dominique Emerson is planning to propose that all city staff must be vaccinated against COVID-19 or get a weekly test and wear a mask if interacting with other people.
