Angia Morris, president of Vernon Historical Society, asked the City Council during Monday’s council meeting to help with process of procuring inmate labor to cut the doorway between the rooms 3 and 4 to allow access to the genealogy section. She submitted a work order to the city and a request for a letter of certification that the Vernon City Hall is asbestos-free building.

The Vernon Historical Society began in 1998 with a group of 18 residents who wanted to preserve historical information for the town. The society collects, preserves and displays historic artifacts, photographs and documents.

“The inmates should have a copy of all our documentation,” said Mayor Michelle Cook.

“We want the door to be something with a separate lock,” Morris said. The historical society will use the room to store the genealogy information we got from the Sims family.

“We don’t know what kind of procedures will be in place for accessing the material, but there will be some set,” she said.

Morris said the historical society would pay for all materials for the door installation.

The council approved the request.
