Monterey Board of Alderman Meeting Postponed

The Monday night Monterey Board of Aldermen meeting has been postponed after at least one city employee tested positive for COVID-19.

Mayor JJ Reels said no member of the board was exposed to the employee. However, out of abundance of caution the board postponed the meeting until October 19.

Also, Reels said the city has seen several confirmed cases from Overton County that call Monterey home. This is the second city employee to test positive in the last two weeks.

Extra precautions are being made at city hall such as ultraviolet light sterilization, and gloves and masks being used for every interaction.
