Des Moines Register: After 15 months, the Des Moines City Council will resume in-person meetings Monday, but not without first implementing a number of new public health and security measures at City Hall. To start, according to a Tuesday news release, the building will close at 4 p.m. ahead of council meetings to allow for a security sweep. The building will reopen to the public at 4:30 p.m., effectively pushing back the start of council meetings to 5 p.m. Members of the public will be able to enter the building from the center doors on the east side or through doors located on the west side, which is ADA accessible. Attendees will be required to pass through armed security and metal detectors to be screened for weapons, according to a news release, before they will be allowed into the second floor.
