Charlottesville City Council is holding its first personal meeting since the COVID-19 pandemic began

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) – Charlottesville City Council met in person on Monday for the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Only 23 seats were open to members of the public, with two seats for media members. Not all seats were full.

Those who attended were Alice Washington, a resident of Crescent Halls, who was one of the first people to speak in front of council members for more than two years. She asked for council support to hold a bus stop directly in front of Crescent Halls.

“People go to the grocery store,” she said. “If they have a walker, they can hang some of the groceries on it, but if they have to go from road over here to road over there, and some of these people are 80, almost 90 years old. It is impossible.

People could still talk about Zoom, and the councilors received some presentations from virtual staff.
