The City Commission meeting previously scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 16, 2021 has been cancelled and agenda items from that meeting will be scheduled for a future date. The emotionally charged events of the last several days have left tensions running high, and have culminated in threats of violence against our elected officials. We take these threats seriously, and the decision was made to cancel out of an abundance of caution.
