VERNON — There will be two less Vernon City Council meetings a month, beginning in July.

“Sometimes I feel like we’re meeting just to meet,” Councilman Tray Hawkins said on Monday. The council discussed reducing the number of monthly meetings at its workshop on June 3.

“We only have four new business items, and we just added one of those,” President Tina Sloan noted.

“I think we can do with just one workshop and one meeting a month,” Hawkins said.

The council voted to hold their monthly workshop on the third Monday of each month and their regular meeting on the fourth Monday, beginning in July.

“We’ll finish up June with two more meetings,” City Clerk Dian Hendrix said, “then we will meet again on the third Monday in July.”

The council members also declined a request from a water department customer to adjust her bill by $51.79. The resident said she had left her water hose on for three days by accident.
