Meet­ings get resched­uled af­ter be­ing post­poned by hur­ri­cane

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - From staff re­ports

A pair of lo­cal meet­ings were forced to be moved due to the threat of se­vere weather due to Hur­ri­cane Irma last week. The Cedar­town City Com­mis­sion was set to meet on Sept. 11 as well as hold­ing their an­nual 9/11 Re­mem­brance Cer­e­mony at the Cedar­town Fire De­part­ment. How­ever, both the com­mis­sion’s Septem­ber reg­u­lar meet­ing and the cer­e­mony were both put off due to the wet weather brought by the im­pact of Hur­ri­cane Irma.

The move al­lowed Cedar­town to add one more item to their agenda to the post­poned ses­sion, moved to Mon­day, Sept. 18, af­ter press time. City com­mis­sion­ers will get to vote on whether to ap­prove an an­nual lease agree­ment with Pri­mary Health­care for their use of space at One Door Polk.

That goes along with de­ci­sions on whether to al­low a church to use prop­erty zoned for C-4, hear­ing from del­e­ga­tions from Hap and Leonard and Lead Polk 2017, and review of the amend­ments to the al­co­hol or­di­nance, among oth­ers.

Cedar­town wasn’t the only lo­cal meet­ing called off due to the weather.

The Board of Ed­u­ca­tion were set to meet on Tues­day night af­ter press time in a makeup meet­ing of their own af­ter push­ing back their Sept. 12 meet­ing last Mon­day. Schools had closed for the first two days of the week due to po­ten­tial safety con­cerns over Hur­ri­cane Irma, and of­fi­cials de­cided to post­pone the meet­ing as well. The only items thus far on the agenda was ap­proval of fi­nan­cial re­ports, per­son­nel de­ci­sions and field trip re­quests.
