Jackson City Council’s regular meeting on March 22 was held at the historic Woodworth Chapel on the campus of Tougaloo College. Occasionally City Council meetings are held on college campuses as a way of engaging students and giving them the opportunity to see government in action. All council members were present. 

The next regular city council meeting is set for 6 p.m. April 5, at City Hall.
