The proposed program would support and fund full recovery for Chaffee nonprofits impacted by COVID-19, providing an avenue for all types of organizations to request reimbursement for direct expenses related to providing programming and care options to Chaffee children in the case of COVID-19 related school closures. According to CCCF, the program could also strive to utilize CVRF funds for local governments ensuring a holistic pandemic recovery.

The Council will also hear a draft of the 2021 budget. Along with this, they will review the Equity Statement for the Civility Invocation.

The council will also receive an overview of Centennial Park and related street improvements. Finally, the team will hear a recycling update.
