#OneCity Update: Mayor Sammy Phillips issued a declaration today with his One City Faith Committee against racism and injustice. The gathering in Jacksonville took place at the same time a memorial service was underway for George Floyd in Minneapolis.

The Mayor met with the Faith Committee to discuss how Jacksonville can avoid systemic racism. After issuing the declaration at the Freedom Fountain, the Mayor and Faith Committee continued to work on an action plan. The Committee heard from Jacksonville Police Chief Mike Yaniero about the prohibition of some of the techniques that caused George Floyd’s death. Jacksonville Police have previously undergone special training that has reduced the use of force associated with some police interactions.

During the meeting, the One City Faith Committee developed concepts for additional actions for unity and support and will continue to work on the issue at future meetings. JacksonvilleNC.gov/OneCity

Riverwalk Marina Environmental Cleanup

Riverwalk Marina Update: City crews helped clean up some environmental issues that were discovered at the Riverwalk Marina construction site. Under the supervision of an environmental engineer, City crews worked for two days to remove tainted soil from the area. A surprise discovery were two underground tanks that had not been previously marked. One was mostly filled with concrete and an undetermined liquid. A second tank had allowed groundwater to seep in. A specialty firm retrieved the liquids from the tank for disposal.
The site has now been cleared, and crews can move forward with final stages of construction. This project is funded by grants and City funds, and the new Marina will be a safe site to enjoy waterfront access.

Riverwalk Marina Area History: The site was originally used for turpentine production, and a wood mill was located in the area. The City's first marina was constructed in the 1950's as Jacksonville came into the "boomtown" era. The Riverwalk Marina building was demolished following irreparable damage from Hurricane Florence.

Update: Stormwater - Roadway Project, Wardola Street at Thompson Creek

Motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists may now access trails and Sturgeon City Park from Wardola Street. Although Wardola Street is open to motor vehicles, traffic stripes still need to be painted. To complete the project, crews are expected to work on one lane at a time, allowing traffic to pass.

Background: The Stormwater - Roadway Project, Wardola Street at Thompson Creek began in 2019 to address a water flow issues with an old culvert under the roadway at Thompson Creek.

The original projected completion date was set for May, 2020 and included removal of the old culvert and installation of a new bridge. New stormwater drainage was also added along the roadway and additional flood prevention measures were taken to allow proper water flow. As a result of the project scope, a section of roadway was also paved and widened to ease traffic flow. Relocation of a section of sewer line extended the initial May 2020 completion date to June.

The City of Jacksonville will resume the phased reopening of City buildings Tuesday, June 2, 2020. Most City buildings were closed since March 25, 2020 as a result of reducing the exposure to COVID-19, and now they will open to the public again with some additional precautions Tuesday.

Some areas of the Jacksonville City Hall will not be open to the public as a result of the phased opening, and special rooms will be used to meet with the public. In person payment of utility bills and permits will be permitted.

Visitors to the City Hall will be required to register as they meet with City Staff.

On Monday, June 1, 2020, the City Hall and other City Buildings were closed as a precaution to some of the violence that had been seen around the nation. There was no specific threat to Jacksonville structures, but the closure added an additional layer of safety. The action also delayed the planned implementation of the phased reopening of City buildings, now set for Tuesday, June 2, 2020.

We are unable to hold a public ceremony this year due to the restriction on public gatherings caused by COVID-19. Earlier this week, Police and City staff held a wreath laying at the Jacksonville Public Safety Remembrance Garden on Chaney.

The observance is held annually to pay tribute to the thousands of men and women who serve with extraordinary bravery.

Jacksonville Police Chief Michael Yaniero has been nationally recognized by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) with the Egon Bittner Award. Congrats Chief!

(Posted May 13, 2020) A national group that awards accreditation to law enforcement agencies has recognized Jacksonville Police Chief Michael G. Yaniero for his dedication to professionalism.

The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) has recognized Chief Yaniero with the Egon Bittner Award. The award is presented to Chief Executive Officers of law enforcement agencies who have commanded an accredited agency for fifteen or more continuous years. It was created to recognize these leaders for their significant contributions to the public safety profession and to CALEA.

Chief Yaniero also serves as the Director of Public Safety for the City of Jacksonville. He not only has piloted the Jacksonville Police Department through continuous accreditation, but he has also participated in many panels to evaluate other law enforcement agencies.

The award given to Yaniero is named after professor Egon Bittner who has been identified for his significant contributions to CALEA’s early development, and who served as a CALEA commissioner during the critical development stage of the organization.

In lieu of a formal presentation to Chief Yaniero that would occur at the national conference, the award was announced by the organization’s social media.

Why don't Jacksonville fix the roads while the virus is in effect? Saving so much money from all the closures.
It's a shame that I cannot get a dead animal removed from in front of my house. It was in the road then some fool decided to toss it on my lawn. Now the county says it is my responsibility to remove it. Come on folks I am 80 years old and I don't have any cats or dogs or any pet. What is it I pay taxes for? Animal Control says it's not their responsibility, it is DOT, but now that some fool put it up in my yard I have to take care of it. Wow folks, just WOW.
How is Rackm's B still open????

The NC Senate will not take up HB966 "2019 Appropriations Act"; it was just sent back to the Rules Committee. We will not see the budget veto overturned or even voted on.
