Economic Stabilization Task Force

The Economic Stabilization Task Force  was established on April 6, 2020, by Mayor Beth Weldon. The goal of this Task Force is to answer the questions outlined in this charging document.  The committee had its introductory meeting on April 9, 2020.  The Task Force is scheduled to report to its findings to the Assembly weekly and its term of service was set to expire six months from inception, which was October 2020. On September 21, 2020, the Assembly voted to extend the commission of the Task Force until the end of December 2020.

The Economic Stabilization Task Force has concluded its work for calendar year 2020. The Task Force will present a report summarizing its achievements to the full Assembly in January, 2021.  The final report will be available on this site once completed.
