Vernon council to reduce meetings

The item was originally in the city council’s consent agenda, but Hawkins suggested it be moved out of the consent agenda for separate discussion and consideration.

“I don’t think we should be changing people’s bills, if we make an exception for one, then we have to do the same for everyone,” Hawkins said. “If we haven’t been doing it, I don’t think we need to start. This would set a precedent.”

There was no motion made to approve the change, so the request was denied.

Mayor Michelle Cook told the council that the July 4 parade will be held at 4 p.m. with line-up starting at 3 p.m. “We’re still looking for vendors,” she said. “They can do anything except food.”

Cook also said that the city league’s 7-8 year old ball team returned from the Zone 3 Tournament in Bonifay last week with the Sportsmanship trophy. Sign-ups for football and cheer have started and interested parents are asked to contact City Hall at 535-2444 for information.

Attorney Michelle Tagert of Chipley also submitted a proposal for services to the council on Monday. The city of Vernon has been without a city attorney since May 14.

Sloan said the council members would discuss her proposal at the June 17 workshop and invited Tagert to that meeting.
