The Grenada City Council will receive training Thursday on “going paperless.”
“Like the school board did a few years ago, the council will receive training to begin using iPads during meetings instead of receiving large amounts of paper in our monthly packets,” said Interim City Manager Charles “JoJo” Weathers. “In the future, this will save paper, time and manpower.”
The special called meeting was originally scheduled for Monday but was moved to Thursday because of scheduling.
The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m.
According to Weathers, the agenda for the meeting also includes discussion of the sports complex and city cross connections and approval of a policy on the city filling swimming pools.
“The city is required by law to enforce cross connection policies for the water system,” said Weathers. “If a business owner does not have a back flow preventer installed on their system, then they run the risk of having their water service terminated.”
Weathers said the council will also discuss and approve a policy on the city filling citizens’ swimming pools.
“We’ve done this in the past, but now we will be requiring the pool to be a certain amount of gallons before the city will fill it.”
Weathers said he did not know what will be discussed for the sports complex.
A meeting of the Grenada County Board of Supervisors and the GLMC board has been scheduled for Tuesday, June 26, to discuss the future of the hospital.
According to Board President and District Two Supervisor Chad Bridges, the meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. at the courthouse.
Although supervisor meetings are usually in the morning, Bridges said the meeting was moved to the evening to accommodate scheduling.
“The supervisors will be going into executive session after the meeting starts,” Bridges said in a telephone interview. “The discussion deals with sensitive issues that pertain to the future of the hospital and its employees. We will be discussing with the hospital board what path we will take.”
