Vernon Labor Day celebration to be held Saturday

Published: Tuesday, August 27, 2013 at 02:33 PM.

People interested in volunteering to help Hammers and Hearts with cleaning and construction should call Tarpley at 478-258-7585.

Residents wanting to be added to the list for assistance should call the county Emergency Management Office at 638-6203.

Vernon City Hall will be closed on Sept. 2 for the holiday, City Clerk Dian Hendrix said.

The council also voted to hire a temporary employee to help in public works while Public Works Director Gerald Ward is out of the office on leave. The council also approved a pay increase for the city’s public works director during Monday’s meeting.

The council also discussed former city attorney Kerry Adkison’s final bill, which the council has challenged.

Hendrix said the city has received an itemized bill and an affidavit, as well as an email from Adkison.

Adkison is refusing to let the city have the files pertaining to ongoing litigation until the bill is paid. City Attorney Michelle Tagert said Adkison is holding the files as a lien until the payment is made, but she needs the files to assess the accuracy of the itemized bill the former attorney has submitted.
