Meetings get rescheduled after being postponed by hurricane
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.
