After several minutes of discussions, the council decided to table the issue until next month’s committee of the whole meeting.
In other business, a proposal was forwarded to city council to review concerning renovating the second floor of the Woody Winfree Fire and Transportation Museum.
The first phase of the project would reportedly cost over $397,000 with the second phase to cost over $173,000, bringing the grand total of the project to be $571,000.
Grant money will likely by used for the renovation of the second floor of the museum, but will not cover the cost of the entire project.
