Council meeting canceled due to coronavirus concerns

The March 23 meeting of Cabool Board of Aldermen was canceled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“The decision to cancel the meeting was not an easy decision, but overall the feeling was that it was for the best,” city administrator Ron Scheets said. “This COVID-19 virus is such a developing issue that as much as anything we want the public to be aware that we are taking it seriously.”

Scheets said no changes have been made in Cabool City Hall hours, but some steps have been taken to help keep citizens and city employees safe.

“We have added Plexiglass in front of the windows for the clerks up front, temporarily for now, and we are disinfecting more often and trying to be sure and keep a safe distance when possible. We have posted at City Hall that if you can use the outside drop box for payments; please do so,” Scheets said.

Department supervisors have been told that any worker who exhibits symptoms of the virus or who does not feel well should go home.

“We will monitor the recommendations from the health departments and state officials and may have to look at some adjustments to our daily routines,” Scheets said.
