The Bemidji City Council will discuss two topics during their work session this evening.
The first topic is the permitting of special events, which are any public events that use city parks and sidewalks, use amplified sound and are issued temporary alcohol licenses.
City staff is recommending no special event permits until after July 1 after discussions with health professionals.
The council may discuss stipulations to event permitting, such as requiring, attendee entry points, attendance capacity limits, limiting alcohol permits, and others.
COVID-19 gathering guidelines will likely continue to change from here through July.
The council will also discuss possibly introducing tribal flags for Leech Lake, White Earth and Red Lake within council chambers.
