The date and location of the Oak Ridge City Council’s monthly work session has been changed for November. The new date is Tuesday, November 7, and the new venue is Jefferson Middle School, located at 200 Fairbanks Road. The meeting will still begin at 6 p.m.
The change of location is part of an ongoing effort to encourage community engagement. The suggestion was brought up during one of the recent Oak Ridge City Blueprint open house meetings organized by the Community Development Department, a press release said.
Work sessions are non-voting meetings of City Council and do not typically include a public comment period. However, this meeting will include an opportunity for informal conversation with City Council members and municipal staff, the press release said.
Other items on the work session agenda include a discussion of the Y-12 National Security Complex substation project and a presentation on the U.S. Department of Energy’s Environmental Management 45-day review.
The November work session was originally scheduled for November 14 at the Oak Ridge Central Services Complex, the usual meeting location for work sessions. The date was changed in order to accommodate conflicting schedules during this month, the press release said.
Any questions about the upcoming work session or other meetings of City Council should be directed to the City Clerk’s office at (865) 425-3411.
