Highlights from Tuesday night’s De Pere City Council Meeting:
The De Pere Health Department continues to offer Covid-19 vaccination clinics. Need flexibility over a specific appointment time, no problem! Starting this week, in addition to signing up for appointments, WALK INS will also be accepted. The link with more information and vaccine sign up is below: https://www.deperewi.gov/topic/index.php?topicid=397
To date the City of De Pere has held 41 vaccine clinics and has issued 2,645 vaccines. Public Health Officials have identified that there are variants of Covid-19 present in Brown County and that these variants are being spread primarily through gatherings among younger groups of people.
Multiple liquor licenses were approved for the upcoming licensing period, and we’ll see more of those requests coming in over the next few meetings.
The City Council accepted a new Disc Golf practice basket at Legion Park, thanks to a generous donation from the Wollin family. Additionally the Council accepted a monetary donation from Greta Johnson for the Recreation Scholarship Fund. You can learn more about this fund and eligibility requirements by visiting the following link: https://www.deperewi.gov/topic/index.php?topicid=132…
The Declaration of Public Health Emergency which authorized the Mayor to act without full Council approval will be terminated on May 10 – due to technological investment made by the City, the Council can now meet quickly and remotely when necessary. With this termination De Pere residents will no longer be able to put out extra bags of garbage or boxes of recycling for pick up.
