Know Your Zone
September is the height of hurricane season. Know your zone, make a plan (which might include having a hurricane buddy in case of evacuation!), and have an emergency kit ready.
The Public Works Department is preparing for an improvement project for the right-turn lane at the Great Bridge Blvd and Battlefield Blvd intersection. View the virtual citizen information meeting and submit your comments through the project webpage (bit.ly/GBBmeeting).
The Virginia Department of Health has come out with an app that could help minimize the spread of COVID-19. It’s the COVIDWISE app and it uses bluetooth low energy technology to quickly notify users who have likely been exposed so you can reduce the risk of infection for your family and friends. All you have to do is download it from the google play store or the iPhone app store.
Chesapeake City Council
Chesapeake City Council does not meet this week. They meet the second, third, and fourth Tuesday of every month so they will be back in Council Chambers next week.
And don't forget that Monday, September 7 is Labor Day so all City offices and facilities will be closed!
