JAMESTOWN – The City of Jamestown will hold several sessions to gage the public’s input on their strategy to use money allocated from the American Rescue Plan.

Last week, Jamestown Mayor Eddie Sundquist unveiled his distribution plan for the $28 million the municipality received as part of the act.

Officials are encouraging residents to voice their thoughts on the plan and to give ideas for what projects could be started with the recovery funds.

The Chautauqua Region Community Foundation is helping to facilitate a public input session this Thursday at the Jefferson Middle School Auditorium at 7 p.m.

Three more sessions will follow on July 24 at the James Prendergast Library at 10 a.m., July 27 at the Chautauqua Center at 7 p.m., and July 29 at Emmanuel Baptist Church at 7 p.m.

The funds are intended for a number of purposes including to replace lost public sector revenue, support economic stabilization for households and businesses, and address systemic public health and economic challenges.
