Fayetteville City Council Meeting Postponed to June 4
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Fayetteville City Council meeting scheduled for tonight at 5:30 p.m. has been postponed to Thursday, June 4, at 5:30 p.m. All agenda items previously planned for review tonight by the council will be taken up on Thursday.
Mayor Jordan made this decision Tuesday afternoon after receiving postponement requests from a majority of City Council members. The requests were made because of a planned protest event scheduled tonight near the Fayetteville Town Center and the Downtown Square Gardens. The protest event and the City Council meeting overlap in timing, creating a scheduling conflict for anyone who wishes to attend both.
Participants in tonight’s protest are urged to do so peacefully and are encouraged to take COVID-19 precautions.
