HARTFORD — The Hartford City Commission will become one of the first bodies in Southwest Michigan to meet again in person since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

City Clerk RoxAnn Rodney-Isbrecht said the in-person meeting set for Monday night was deemed essential to discuss and approve ballot language for the August election, and because city commissioners and staff do not have the technology to run an effective electronic meeting for all commissioners and staff required to attend.
