City of Jenks postpones April Bond election indefinitely due to Coronavirus outbreak
Jenks residents will have to wait a few more months to have the opportunity to have their voices heard when it comes to the road system in their city.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the City of Jenks has announced its April 7 Bond Election will take place at a later date.
The Jenks City Council discussed, voted and approved the movement of the bond issue at a special City Council meeting Friday.
All City Councilors, Members of the Public Works Authority and City Staff video-conferenced into the meeting. The City Clerk, Police Chief, Director of Communications and City Manager were the only people present at the City Hall Council Chambers.
Oklahoma State House of Representatives Lonnie Sims and Sheila Dills approved emergency legislation to temporarily amend the Oklahoma Open Meeting Act to allow public meetings to utilize video-conferences if any chooses to do so.
