Councilor Patricia Spitzley thinks the hybrid model is a good way to go. She said some people are uncomfortable with face-to-face meetings and there are some who don’t have internet access.

“The hybrid model that allows some people to be personal allows people who may not have had the opportunity to participate in city government in the past due to the pandemic. It gives them the opportunity to come down and in the chambers and to his comment on things that are important to her, “said Spitzley.
