Mayor Holds Public Town Hall Meeting

September 27th, Mayor George Moss called to order a public town hall meeting. His goal to was to anyone with concerns for the city to be brought before him, to allow their voice to be heard and take care of their situation.

The first thing the Mayor presented to the audience was the thanks to the staff of the City Hall, for not only working so well in the past 90 days he has been in office, but also doing the preparations for the meeting.

He mentioned that the software for City Hall has been updated. When he first started in office, it was brought the mayor’s attention that there was mold growing in the certain parts of city hall, so there fore they have been renovating the inside of city hall with new walls and flooring. Also the Allen building has been refreshed with a new coat of paint on the outside, and the inside, along with new chairs and tables.

Mayor George Moss speaks to Kiwanis club

Mayor George Moss spoke to the Kiwanis club Monday, September 24th about his first almost 100 days in office (86 to be precise). He said it has been a whirlwind ride. One of the first things that happened was the discovery of mold in City Hall. If you are not allergic it doesn’t bother you but the mayor and a new employee Angel Martin were affected by it. The mold was in the carpet, the air conditioning system and the back wall in the city attorney’s office. Servpro, out of Monroe, was able to come in and get rid of the mold for a very reasonable price. All the employees had to be moved to the Utility Office for a time. After the walls are painted and the floors redone they will be able to move back to City Hall. In the Allen building they removed a wall and shored up a beam. They have requested a grant to fix problems in that building.
