NOTICE: The meeting originally planned between City Council and the Jeannette School Board for tonight, February 27, has been cancelled by the school board.
A joint meeting between the City and School was recently discussed by Superintendent Hutcheson at the December 2016 City Council meeting. The parties tentatively planned to meet this evening to discuss relevant issues impacting our community.
Upon advice of our solicitor, the City informed the school that the meeting should be advertised and be open to the public.
Last week, after informing the school board of the desire to advertise a joint public meeting, the City was advised that the school board no longer wished to meet. The City was informed that the school board met in executive session and the outcome was to inform the City that the meeting is cancelled. No reason was provided.
City leaders hope the school board will reconsider the decision to have an open public meeting to discuss relevant issues affecting our community.
