City Council Will Honor James Wilson

Bishop City Council honoring Wilson tonight

A moment of silence will be part of an acknowledgement by the Bishop City Council tonight.  The regular meeting of the Bishop City Council will include a time to honor the late businessman for his contributions to the community.  Wilson’s Eastside Sports has been a pillar of Main Street Bishop for decades.  The tribute to James Wilson is scheduled to take place directly after the council begins the open session portion of their meeting tonight at 6pm.  The Bishop City Council meets in their chambers at 301 west line street.

Tonight’s (Monday, July 27th) agenda includes a closed session at 5pm for labor negotiations followed by the open session.  The Inyo County Planning Department will make a presentation on the North Sierra Highway Corridor plan.  The department heads will make presentations to the council and Executive Director Tawni Thomson will present the Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau update.  Under new business, the Bishop City Council will consider the approval of changing two parking spaces on East South Street from unrestricted to 24 minute parking.  The council will also be asked to approve the city’s official response to the Grand Jury Report relating to the annual inspection of the Bishop Police Department.

Following tonight’s meeting the next regular meeting of the Bishop City Council will be held on Monday, August 10th.
