Council meets Tuesday at Georgia Southern
Placeholder Image

      Statesboro City Council, along with Mayor Joe Brannen and interim City Manager Frank Parker, will assemble Tuesday for a regularly scheduled meeting in Georgia Southern University’s Nesmith-Lane Building.
       The council will meet on the campus of Georgia Southern for a second time in two years – the city officials met at the same location in April one year ago – in an attempt to foster a closer relationship with students and the city.
      Despite the special venue, council will not stray from its customary business and consider a short list of motions – no agenda item is of particular note to university students.
      Items appearing before council include: a motion to award a special event permit for a benefit ball; a motion to approve or deny the first reading for an alcohol license for Lily’s Café; a motion to declare a non-functioning pick-up truck as surplus and authorize its disposal through government deals, and a motion to approve a revolution regarding payments to the City of  Statesboro by the Statesboro Housing Authority for the 2010 tax-year.
     Council has reserved all three public comment time-slots for members of the Georgia Southern community.
     Members of council will meet again at the City of Statesboro’s annual budget retreat April 22 at 8:30 p.m. in The Gateway Pondhouse on Georgia Highway 301 North. The public is invited to attend.
