Agenda for 2 April City Council meeting

The Christchurch City Council will hold an online meeting this Thursday 2 April. The Council has revoked delegations previously granted to Community Boards, so any matters specific to the Papanui area that need addressing in the short term will be dealt with by Council or the Council's Emergency Committee – there are no such items on this week's agenda, which is focused on COVID-19. The meeting will be streamed online and a recording will be made available after the fact. Click through to read the agenda for the meeting:
