MICHIGAN CITY — In an attempt to keep city government running during an unprecedented public health emergency, the Michigan City Common Council gathered via Zoom video conference Friday to try a new meeting format.

All nine council members, Mayor Duane Parry, City Clerk Gale Neulieb and council attorney Jim Meyer phoned in to discuss the best way to move forward, despite being unable to convene in person under the governor’s shelter-in-place order.
