HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) – The public will be allowed to return to Huntington City Council meetings starting Monday, June 14.

City officials made that announcement Friday. They explained that Council chambers will be limited to 26 people; that includes City Council members, staff and members of the public -- all to allow for social distancing.

Anyone who wishes to speak on an agenda item during the meeting will be able to do so.

According to city officials, a TV monitor used to stream the meeting live will be set up in the main hallway of City Hall to make up for an overflow of people.

Also, meeting attendees will have their temperatures checked as they enter Council chambers. Those who haven’t been vaccinated against COVID-19 are asked to wear a mask.
