Please note that only the City Commission Meeting Agenda is posted below. At the end of the agenda, click on the link to take you to more detailed minutes of the meeting. Also, the meeting minutes will not be published in each issue of The Buchanan Chronicle (probably once a month) due to rules that minutes are approved at the next City Commission meeting.

The Buchanan City Commission met via Zoom for their first Monday meeting of March 8th 2021 at 7:01 pm; all commissioners were present. The Pledge of Allegiance was led by Mayor Denison and roll call was taken with no absentees. There were no additions to the agenda, and the approval of the agenda was motioned by Commissioner Mark Weedon, supported by Commissioner Patrick Swem, and a yes motion to carry it by all commissioners.
