October 6, 2005
The meeting was called to order by Mayor Rozier with Councilman Waller leading in prayer. The minutes of the September 15, 2005 meeting were reviewed. Councilman Ray made a motion to approve said minutes, Councilman Tyler seconded the motion and it passed with six affirmative votes.
Attorney Dickey stated that there was no new information to report on the lawsuit against EPD regarding water permit issues.
Mayor Rozier informed council that Chief Gossett reported that all but one truck had been removed from the property owned by Al Bowen located at #301 E. Hwy 80.
Council was advised that information is being compiled for the preparation of letters to be sent to property owners regarding the securing of maintenance easements for the Pipemaker’s Spur.
Mayor Rozier reported that he had been advised by the DOT that the City would need to submit a working set of engineered plans for Stagecoach Road and he was trying to get with an engineer to prepare the plans.
Council was advised that Chief Gossett had obtained cost estimates for the installation of low level speed humps and the price was approximately $3500 each. Citizens Tammy Davenport and Anthony Wiruth were present at the meeting and the Mayor asked if the residents were still willing to pay for the speed hump(s). Mr. Wirth confirmed that they were willing to pay for them. Citizen Neil Medlin, who lives at #201E Garvin Street, indicated that he came to the meeting in support of the residents on Boulevard Street, but wanted to make council aware of problems that are also occurring on Pine Street. Councilman Wedincamp commented that if the residents were willing to pay for the devices shouldn’t they be allowed to get some additional prices. Chief Gossett stated that there were certain criteria that had to be met regarding the height, width, and signage for the speed humps, but could provide this information to the residents. Chief Gossett pointed out that the installation of this type device must be limited and controlled by council to keep from opening up another set of problems. Councilman Wedincamp suggested council consider sharing the cost of the construction with the property owners, but concerns were expressed that the costs could get out of hand because once the City shares in the cost of the device(s) on Boulevard it will just be a matter of time before other property owners will want them installed on their street. Mr. Medlin stated that although there were other problem streets, he did not want to cause any delays in the residents along Boulevard Street getting the relief they needed as soon as possible. The Mayor asked for the names and addresses of those citizens present at tonight’s meeting who live along Boulevard Street and any other streets with similar problems, so he could contact them with additional information about the devices.
The Mayor recognized Gene Autrey who had attended last council meeting to discuss with council the installation of driveway pipe in a drainage ditch at the rear of his property located at #1203C E. Hwy 80 to have access to the old Central of Georgia Railroad bed (Main Street). It was noted that there are actually two ditches that must be piped for Mr. Autrey to have this access and Councilman Ray stated that he had no objections to Mr. Autrey putting pipes in both ditches as long as he was willing to pay the current installation fees to the City. The Mayor pointed out that it was his understanding from the last meeting that Mr. Autrey wanted to close up the ditch that was installed by the City along Main Street because according to him the ditch that was on his property was actually providing the drainage. Mr. Autrey confirmed the Mayor’s statement and also advised council that he did not want to provide a maintenance easement for the City to maintain the ditch on his property because he would keep it cleaned out. Several council members expressed concern that if for some reason he failed to keep it clean, there could be drainage problems for his neighbors. Mr. Autrey stated that he felt he had lived in the City a long time and was entitled to access to Main Street from his property. Mayor Rozier pointed out that since Main Street was not an improved street and there was no infrastructure in that area, there could be problems with property owners wanting to use the street as their public access for the purpose of dividing their properties. The Mayor recognized Citizen Roger Ray who stated that he felt Mr. Autrey should be given the access he is requesting. Councilman Waller expressed a desire to allow him the access. Councilman Wedincamp stated that if Mr. Autrey was willing to pay for the installation of one of the pipes he would make a motion that the City pay for the other. Mayor Rozier commented that if we paid for his pipe we would have to consider paying the cost for all of the other property owners that may want to access the street in the future. Councilman Tyler asked if we had received the report from Thomas & Hutton regarding which ditch would best provide the drainage for the area as discussed at the last meeting. The Mayor reported that to the best of his knowledge the engineer had not yet been out to check the drainage. Councilman Johnson stated that he did not feel we should do anything until Thomas & Hutton gave us a report about this particular drainage situation. Councilman Wedincamp’s motion to pay the cost for the installation of one of the drainage pipes failed due to the lack of a second. After continued discussion regarding the need to have the engineer review the drainage, Councilman Johnson made a motion to table any action on this request until the City received a report from Thomas & Hutton. Councilman Tyler seconded the motion and it passed with five affirmative votes from Council members Johnson, Myrick, Ray, and Tyler & Waller. Councilman Wedincamp voted against the motion.
Councilman Wedincamp stepped down from the podium during discussion of the next agenda item.
Council was reminded that at the September 15, 2005 council meeting, a continuance was granted to Attorney Yellin until tonight’s meeting for council’s consideration of a variance on the roadway access off Cheyenne Road as requested by his client Gordon Jones. Attorney Dickey had reported that he had been in contact with Attorney Yellin since that meeting and felt that based on their last conversation some progress was being made toward a possible solution to the access problem. Mayor Rozier recognized Attorney Yellin who stated that he had been working with Mr. Jones and other property owners living on Cheyenne Road and these owners had signed quit claim deeds for their 15’ strips of property (a total of 45’) out to Highway 80 over to the City of Bloomingdale. The owners wanted the City to accept the deeds and Attorney Yellin stated that the existing roadway would be used as their access until Mr. Rogers and Mr. Wedincamp decided exactly where they wanted to place the roadway into their development. Attorney Yellin advised council that he was prepared to submit the quit claim deeds to the City tonight and stated that he apologized to council and Councilman Wedincamp for any remarks that were made at previous meetings that may have been inaccurate and realized now that some were ill advised. Attorney Dickey questioned Attorney Yellin about his presenting this proposed option because this was different than the information he indicated would be submitted to council at tonight’s meeting. Attorney Yellin admitted there were other alternatives, but this was the option being presented by the owners at this time. Mayor Rozier stated that this information would have to be reviewed by Attorney Dickey before any decision could be made by council. Councilman Tyler asked if this proposal would resolve the issue, but Attorney Dickey was concerned about other problems that could be created by the City accepting the property. Councilman Johnson asked who would then be responsible for paving the road if it was City owned property. Councilman Tyler stated that he did not want the City to be responsible for the expense related to paving the road since it was his understanding that the developers would be paving the road as part of the PUD. Mr. Wedincamp stated that the road had been accepted as a private road and the City could not make them pave it. Several council members questioned this statement as they too recalled Mr. Rogers and Mr. Wedincamp stating that they were going to pave the road. Councilman Johnson made a motion to table this matter until the next meeting to allow time for Attorney Dickey to review the documents regarding the quit claim deeds. Councilman Tyler seconded the motion and it passed with five affirmative votes. Mr. Wedincamp asked Attorney Yelling if he and the property owners that were here tonight could meet with him now to discuss this issue to see if they could resolve the concerns that were raised by council. Mr. Wedincamp asked the Mayor if they could come to an agreement, could they bring the information back tonight. The Mayor pointed out that Mr. Rogers was not here and if this discussion involved issues related to the roadway becoming public our attorney should be present; however, he was not available to meet right now. Attorney Dickey advised the Mayor that if they were going to discuss issues related to a private road, he did not need to be present, but also stated the council had already agreed to table the matter until the next meeting. Mr. Wedincamp left the council meeting to discuss the issue with Mr. Yellin and property owners from Cheyenne Road.
The Mayor advised council that a public hearing had been scheduled for tonight’s meeting to receive citizen input on a request from Lorrie Shearouse Crosby to operate a family day care from her residence located at #189 Wallace Drive. As previously reported Ms. Crosby was operating the day care prior to her property being annexed into the City and has met the requirements for a Certificate of Registration from the State of Georgia for up to a maximum of six children. Mayor Rozier called the public hearing to order and asked if there were any comments from the citizens regarding the request. The Mayor recognized Kenneth Taschner, a resident living at #184 Wallace Circle, who stated that he had not had any problems with the day care. (Note: At the last meeting, Ms. Crosby had provided council with a statement signed by the neighbors indicating there were no problems with the day care nor the traffic related to it). Being no additional comments from citizens, the Mayor adjourned the public hearing. Mayor Rozier asked Ms. Crosby if she could abide by the stipulations outlined in the zoning ordinance related to home occupation businesses that were distributed to her at the last meeting and she stated that she could. Councilman Tyler made a motion to grant the request from Ms. Crosby to operate the family day care as a home occupation business from #189 Wallace Drive and to issue her a license. Councilman Ray seconded the motion and it passed with five affirmative votes. Ms. Crosby was advised to submit a copy of her renewed Certificate of Registration from the State of Georgia to the clerk’s office as soon as it was issued to her since the current certificate expires on December 1, 2005.
Mayor Rozier stated that a public hearing was also scheduled for tonight’s meeting to receive citizen input on a request from Gaddy Turner to obtain a mobile home permit to replace the 1969, 12’ x 64’ trailer located on his property at #124 Towles Road with a 1995, 22’ x 44’ trailer. It was noted that the zoning ordinance only allows one principal building per lot; however, this mobile home, along with another residential structure was located on the property when it was annexed in 1998. Council agreed to consider Mr. Turner’s request as an appeal for a variance from the zoning ordinance since the enlargement or alteration of either of these residential structures would be in violation of the ordinance unless a variance was granted by council. The Mayor called the hearing to order and asked for citizen input. There were no comments from citizens, so the hearing was closed. The Mayor asked for questions or comments from council. Councilman Tyler asked why Mr. Turner wanted to replace the trailer. Mr. Turner advised him that the trailer was unsafe, so he needed to remove it and pointed out that there was only 200 sq. ft. difference between the two trailers. Council agreed that a variance would be in order due to the safety issues related to the existing trailer. Councilman Tyler made a motion to grant the variance to Mr. Turner to replace the existing trailer with the 1995, 22’ x 44’ trailer as discussed. Councilman Myrick seconded the motion and it passed with five affirmative votes.
The Mayor presented the following requests for the issuance of home occupation licenses:
1) Terry & Janet Jones requested a home occupation license to operate the “office only” of a general contracting business from their residence located at #114 Conaway Road. Mr. Jones indicated that the business would have two employees and there would be no outside traffic related to the business coming to the residence. The Mayor advised council that they had the option to waive the public hearing requirement. Councilman Tyler made a motion to waive the public hearing, Councilman Myrick seconded the motion and it passed with five affirmative votes. Councilman Ray made a motion to issue the home occupation license, Councilman Johnson seconded the motion and it passed with five affirmative votes.
2) Darlene & Bobby Holloway presented their request to operate the “office only” of a business from their residence located at #206 Cypress Street for the selling of items on ebay, websites and at flea markets. Their application indicated the business would have two employees and the Holloways had stated that there would be no outside traffic related to the business coming to the residence. Councilman Myrick asked if there would be a need to store inventory on the premises and Ms. Holloway advised him that they would store any such items in their existing garage. Councilman Tyler made a motion to waive the public hearing requirement, Councilman Johnson seconded the motion and it passed with five affirmative votes. Councilman Myrick made a motion to issue the home occupation license and Councilman Johnson seconded the motion. The motion passed with five affirmative votes.
3) The Mayor recognized Johnny Whitsell who presented his request to operate the “office only” of a contractor/home builder business from his residence located at #208 Conaway Road. Mr. Whitsell advised council that he would be the only employee and there would be no outside traffic related to the business coming to the residence. Councilman Tyler made a motion to waive the public hearing requirement, Councilman Ray seconded the motion and it passed with five affirmative votes. Councilman Tyler made a motion to issue the home occupation license, Councilman Johnson seconded the motion and it passed with five affirmative votes.
Council was advised that an application for an occupational license had been received from ReMax Today to operate a real estate office at #608 E. Highway 80. The structure has previously been used as a residence, but once the sale is completed, which is expected to be by November 1, 2005, the building will be used as a business location only. According to the applicant, the initial operation is expected to have nine (9) agents with two full time office personnel. Council was reminded that the City’s Zoning Ordinance, Article V, Section 410 outlines requirements for a site plan for the development of a site adjacent to properties with a more restrictive zoning classification or abutting or fronting onto arterial or collector streets. Although the zoning of this property is C-1, which allows a real estate office, the property abuts U.S. Hwy 80 and is adjacent to property zoned R-1 located across the street. It was noted that although this section of the zoning ordinance indicates the site plan is required before the issuance of a building permit, there will be a change in the usage of the building, so the occupation license request has been submitted to council to determine how the site plan requirements should be applied to this existing structure. Also, there are some parking requirements that will need to be addressed. The Mayor recognized Mr. Walker who was presenting the request on behalf of ReMax Today. Council discussed this information with Attorney Dickey who confirmed that the site plan requirements needed to be met and suggested that the building inspector review their plans on behalf of the City. Attorney Dickey stated that the City also needed to make sure they met the ADA parking and access requirements before issuing the occupational license. Mayor Rozier advised Mr. Walker that although he felt sure no one on council had any objections to his plans for the structure he would have to meet the requirements of the City’s ordinances. Councilman Tyler made a motion to allow the occupational license to be issued to ReMax Today pending the submission of a site plan that met the requirements of the City’s zoning ordinance and all ADA requirements and the site had been prepared and approved by the building inspector. Councilman Johnson seconded the motion and it passed with five affirmative votes.
Citizen Eric Jones, a resident at #418 Pine Street, advised council that the unopened portion of Boulevard Street that bordered his property was overgrown and unsightly. Mr. Jones stated that if the City could cut down the larger bushes he would maintain the area. Council was advised the strip was approximately 50’ wide and about 185’ to 200’ deep. Councilman Johnson asked him about the size of the larger bushes and was advised that they were about 7’ to 8’ high and several inches around and he did not have the equipment to cut anything that size. Councilman Tyler asked Attorney Dickey how the City should handle this request since the property did not belong to us and was advised that this would actually be at council’s discretion. Councilman Johnson asked General Maintenance Supervisor Fett Burke if this was something the maintenance department could handle and was advised that they could take care of it. Councilman Johnson advised Mr. Jones that the maintenance crew would clear the larger bushes.
Mayor Rozier reported that the City had received correspondence from Richard Shirah with Earthcom Services, Inc. advising that T-Mobile is in the process of expanding their wireless network in and around the Chatham County area and they prefer to co-locate on existing towers or other structures rather than building new towers. The Mayor recognized Mr. Shirah who requested council’s consideration of the use of the City’s water tower for their equipment. Council was advised that a similar request was submitted by Mr. Shirah on behalf of TLC Communications in mid-2001, however, the changes to the proposed lease agreement that were required by the Mayor and Council before its approval were never submitted by TLC and the matter was removed from the agenda at council’s request on March 7, 2002. Mr. Shirah advised council that the company would need an area approximately 15’ x 20’ for their equipment. Council discussed the request and felt that before making a commitment on this request Attorney Dickey would need to review their proposal and lease agreement. Councilman Johnson asked Water/Sewer Supervisor Ernest Grizzard if he had any idea of the position of Utility Services, Inc. on the installation of this type equipment on the water tower. Mr. Grizzard stated that he did not know, but would contact them about the request. Mr. Shirah stated that he had dealt with Utility Services, Inc. on previous occasions and had a good working relationship with their staff. Council suggested that Mr. Shirah submit the proposal and lease agreement to Attorney Dickey for his review and Mr. Shirah stated he would forward the information to the City.
The Mayor presented a request by Pastor Leonard Daughtery on behalf of the Westside Christian Church to disconnect their church buildings from City water and connect them to a private well located on the property. Council was advised by Attorney Dickey that the City’s Utility Ordinance requires that structures located within 200’ of a City water system be connected to the system and pointed out that this is actually a state requirement. Council discussed the request and questions were raised about continuing to allow the residential structure owned by and located next to the church to remain on a private well. It was noted that the City’s policy in the past had been to allow those customers having their own wells to remain on their system rather than be required to connect to City water. However, since the church was already connected to City water, Attorney Dickey questioned council allowing them to disconnect from the water system. Pastor Daughtery asked if it would be possible to disconnect the sprinkler system from the City’s water supply and use a private well for watering purposes. Council agreed that if it is only used for irrigation purposes this should be allowed. Councilman Myrick stated that Water Supervisor Ernest Grizzard must supervise the disconnection to make sure the City’s water system is protected from any backflow from their private well. Council agreed to the disconnection with this stipulation.
Council reviewed a request from Kevin & Kay Heritage to renew the “medical hardship” permit for the secondary mobile home located on their property at #1230 Bloomingdale Road. According to a statement provided by Dr. Troy Murphy, the medical problems of Kay’s mother, Ho Shim Shaw, still exist and she requires daily assistance from her daughter. Ms. Heritage is requesting a six month extension of the secondary mobile home permit as allowed by the zoning ordinance. Based on the medical report from the physician and Ms. Heritage’s request, Councilman Ray made a motion to renew the permit for another six months. Councilman Johnson seconded the motion and it passed with five affirmative votes.
Mayor Rozier presented the lease supplement from GMA that has been prepared and submitted for execution by the City for the financing of the 2006 Ford F-250 in the amount of $18,742 at an interest rate of 4.02%. The Mayor stated that the purchase of the truck was approved in the FY 2005/2006 budget with the understanding that it would be financed with GMA for a three year period. After a brief discussion, Councilman Ray made a motion to approve the execution of the lease supplement with GMA by Mayor Rozier. Councilman Tyler seconded the motion and it passed with five affirmative votes.
The Mayor informed council that a couple of rates were not specifically addressed with the recent changes to the Fee Schedule Policy that were approved in August and September and these rates were as follows:
1) The rate for the extension of water/sewer mains by City crews was increased from $2.50 per foot, per service to $8.50 per foot, per service effective 10-1-05. Council did not discuss whether to increase the cost for the running of sewer service lines installed from the property line to the sewer stub out of a structure billed at $2.50 per foot if there is more than 80’ of line involved. Councilman Tyler made a motion to increase the cost of the sewer service line from $2.50 per foot to $8.50 per foot. Councilman Johnson seconded the motion and it passed with five affirmative votes.
2) The rates charged for the installation of driveways were increased effective 10-1-05, however, council did not discuss an increase in the installation of walkways. Council was advised that these rates had previously been the same as those for driveway installations. Councilman Tyler made a motion to increase the rates for walkway installations to the same as those for driveway installations. Councilman Myrick seconded the motion and it passed with five affirmative votes.
Council was reminded that the adoption of the FY 2005/2006 budget included the addition of a designated holiday effective July 1, 2005 and continuing every year thereafter with the Mayor and Council to establish the date of the designated holiday at the beginning of each year. The budget notes specified that those employees scheduled to work on the designated holiday would receive holiday pay; however, council has been asked to allow all employees to receive pay for the designated holiday. Councilman Waller made a motion to approve this request, Councilman Tyler seconded the motion and it passed with five affirmative votes.
Mayor Rozier presented the following information/recommendations from the Planning & Zoning Commission:
1) The commission has scheduled a public hearing for Tuesday, October 18, 2005 at 6:30pm to receive citizen input on changes to the Zoning Ordinance – Appendix B – Multiple Unit Residential. The proposed changes are:
a) Add a definition for “Dwelling, single-family attached”—A main dwelling unit attached to one or two other main dwellings by means of a roof and/or interior wall, with each dwelling unit occupying its own lot.
b) Change Appendix B—Multiple Unit Residential, Article V, Design standards, (B) by striking “Apartment building” and replacing it with “Dwelling, multiple family or Dwelling, single-family attached.” (Note: The commission will also be considering whether to add “Dwelling, two-family (duplex)” to this section)
2) The commission is recommending the approval of the B & P Development at Osteen & Main Streets with the following stipulations as outlined in their minutes dated September 20, 2005:
a) Align entrance of Garvin Street
b) Settle all legal property issues with Ms. A. Kelly related to land and water and put in a buffer between her property and the development
c) Do not do anything (no construction) in area “Tract A” until plans for the Jimmy Deloach Parkway are established or resolved.
d) Traffic study at Osteen and Main Street – No development in “Tract A” until “Tract B” has been developed and another study is completed.
Attorney Dickey advised council that he had talked with the attorneys for both Ms. Kelly and Mr. Black just prior to the September 20th Planning Commission meeting and had advised the commission members, in writing, that no action should be taken on this matter until the legal issues had been resolved. Chairman Andrew Rawlings advised council that the Planning Commission considered this information when they included the requirement that the legal issues would need to be resolved as a stipulation of the recommendation for approval. The Mayor recognized Herb Black who stated that the developers had agreed to make whatever adjustments were needed to the property lines to appease Ms. Kelly and that they really needed to get council’s approval to proceed with this project. Attorney Dickey pointed out that there would have to be an amended plat submitted to council showing the adjustments to the scope of the project since that would actually be the plan that would be approved. It was noted that the City’s current ordinance still had to be amended before the development could be approved. Council discussed the matter at length, but based on Attorney Dickey’s recommendation that the legal issues must be resolved before the project could be approved, Councilman Ray made a motion to table action on this issue, Councilman Waller seconded the motion and it passed with five affirmative votes.
Council was informed that renewal notices for 2006 Occupational Taxes would be mailed out the first of December and if adjustments were going to be made to these fees, a public hearing would have to be held. Copies of our current rates and those charged by nearby cities have been distributed for council’s review. Councilman Johnson stated that he felt council should review this information and discuss the matter at the October 20th meeting and council agreed.
The Mayor reported that the City had received information from GMA on the 2005 Mayors’ Christmas Motorcade and, in the past, Bloomingdale has participated in this program by contributing $200 in gifts to the Georgia Regional Hospital. Councilman Ray made a motion contribute gifts in the amount of $200 to the hospital. Councilman Waller seconded the motion and it passed with five affirmative votes.
Councilman Johnson stated that he was concerned about the number of non-City related vehicles that are being parked at City Hall because of the limited number of parking spaces that are available for employees and visitors. Councilman Johnson reported that he, along with several other council members, had discussed their concerns with Chief Gossett in the pre-agenda meeting and he stated that he would have the vehicles moved to the parking spaces along the back of the parking lot.
Councilman Johnson advised council that four (4) bids had been obtained on a new trash truck and he presented the bids to the Mayor. Mayor Rozier opened the bids and they were as follows:
1) Freightliner of Savannah - $53,481
2) Roberts Ford Trucks, Garden City - $46,400
3) Coastal Chevrolet, Savannah - $46,700
4) Roberts International Trucks, Richmond Hill - $47,178.57
Councilman Myrick asked council to table a decision on acceptance of a bid on the trash truck until he had an opportunity to review them. Councilman Myrick stated that he would like to talk with city personnel and the General Services Committee members about these vehicles to insure that we purchased the truck that would best meet the City’s needs and council agreed with his request.
Mayor Rozier stated that Citizen Arthur Blakely had raised some questions regarding visibility along the roadway to his property, but since he was not at tonight’s meeting to discuss the matter with council this would be tabled.
The Mayor stated that this concluded the items that were received prior to the agenda deadline of Friday, September 30, 2005.
During committee reports, Councilman Ray reported that First Chatham Bank had been the high bidder on rates for certificates of deposit maturing in late September and the certificates were placed with them. Councilman Ray also reported that he was concerned about recent reports that the City was only giving the Bloomingdale Volunteer Fire Department about $40,000 per year to provide fire protection to its citizens. Councilman Ray pointed out that over the last four years the City has approved the purchase of two fire trucks from SLOST monies at a cost of almost $300,000 and agreed to pay approximately $75,000 of this expense from the general fund; provided funds for the Hepatitis A & B vaccines to the firefighters; and also paid the cost for workers’ compensation coverage for the fire department. Councilman Ray commented that the City of Bloomingdale has provided substantial financial support for the Bloomingdale Volunteer Fire Department and wanted its citizens to be made aware of this information. Councilman Ray thanked the fire department for their assistance in moving limbs that were blown down during recent storms in the area.
Councilman Johnson advised council that concerns had been expressed by citizens during the latest rainstorms about the need to post some “Street Flooded” signs in problem areas and the maintenance department was looking into getting some folding signs that can be carried by the police department to post when these problems occur after working hours.
Councilman Myrick reported that the police building was approximately 95% completed and the expenditures at this time total approximately $284,000. Councilman Myrick pointed out that the renovation of the existing building behind City Hall provided about twice as much space as originally planned by the construction of a new building. The police building will provide much needed space and allow for additional growth by the department. Councilman Myrick also reported that the City was in the process of obtaining bids for drainage work and paving of the parking lot and this work would be underway as soon as the bid was awarded.
Councilman Wedincamp returned to the council meeting.
Councilman Wedincamp commented that he hoped the police building could be occupied in about fifteen days. It was noted that prior to occupancy, however, we would make sure that it was in compliance with the appropriate codes.
Councilman Tyler stated that we were still working with Southeast Engineering on the preparation of the water/sewer mapping of the City.
The accounts payable were reviewed. Councilman Johnson made a motion to pay the bills, Councilman Tyler seconded the motion and it passed with six affirmative votes.
Being no further business, Councilman Waller made a motion to adjourn at 8:25pm. Councilman Ray seconded the motion and it passed with six affirmative votes.
Mayor Rozier and all council members were present at the meeting.
