Aragon Coun­cil meet­ing on Thurs­day for March ses­sion

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - By Sean Wil­liams [email protected]­

Aragon is look­ing to tackle ev­ery­thing from the pur­chase of po­lice equip­ment to the hir­ing of a new em­ployee dur­ing their Thurs­day, March 21 meet­ing, and those in­ter- ested in spec­tat­ing can visit city hall be­gin­ning at 6 p.m. for their work ses­sion and 7 p.m. for the of­fi­cial meet­ing.

If the pur­chases are ap­proved, the Aragon Po­lice Depart­ment is look­ing at both new ri­fles and outer vest car­ri­ers. The coun­cil reg­u­larly ap­proves new equip­ment for the of­fi­cers as needed, but the mer­chant, type, and quan­tity is of­ten up for de­bate. Much of that will also largely de­pend upon how much money is avail­able in the gen­eral fund for pur­chases.

There might be fewer pot­holes on Aragon roads if the Pub­lic Works Depart­ment gets an ex­tra pair of hands in the form of Stoney Smith. The coun­cil will de­cide if the worker is fit for a full-time po­si­tion within the depart­ment dur­ing the meet­ing, and if agreed on, it shouldn’t be long un­til Smith is al­lowed to start.

Other mat­ters be­ing brought to the ta­ble in­clude dis­cus­sion on whether the city will en­ter a con­tract with Ge­or­gia Real­tors for the sale of prop­erty on Rome High­way and for­mal ap­proval for the fire­works needed at the Aragon BBQ com­ing up this sum­mer.

Those who miss the meet­ing can at­tend fu­ture gath­er­ings on the sec­ond Thurs­day of each month at city hall be­gin­ning at 7 p.m. Work ses­sions al­ways be­gin an hour prior in the same lo­ca­tion.
