The Crossett mayor’s state of the city has been delayed another month and is now scheduled for the April council meeting. 

Mayor Scott McCormick said he was scheduled to give the state of the city in February, but had to postpone it to March because he was hospitalized. 

The March meeting — which was scheduled for March 16 — was canceled as a precautionary measure in light of the COVID-19 outbreak in the state.

“The governor said we needed to avoid gatherings of 10 or more, so we are just trying to follow that,” McCormick said. 

Everything from the March agenda was moved to the April agenda. In addition to the mayor’s state of the city address, a resident had asked to speak and his request was moved to the April agenda as well. 

“We didn’t have much on the agenda for last week. I think the state of the city was going to be the biggest thing, so that should make the April agenda pretty short,” McCormick said. 

The mayor said the Crossett School District had officially moved out of the zoo area and so the city would be looking at what to do with that property.

“That may be something that we discuss at the next council meeting, but I don’t know if there will be anything to discuss,” McCormick said. 

The April meeting is scheduled for April 20 at 6 p.m. McCormick said that if it has to be rescheduled a notice will be posted to the city’s Facebook page.
