Decatur City Council to cancel election, fill hospital board seat

By Messenger Staff | Published Saturday, March 15, 2014

With no contested races on the ballot, the Decatur City Council Monday evening will consider the first reading of an ordinance canceling the May 10 election.

Mayor Martin Woodruff and council members Cary Bohn (place 3) and Jay Davidson (place 5) are unopposed for re-election, and Carmelina Holloway is alone in seeking Place 1, which will be vacated by council member Dana Clinesmith who is not seeking re-election.

The ordinance will cancel the election and declare those members re-elected.

In Monday’s 6 p.m. meeting, which was pushed back a week due to spring break, the council will also consider appointing Dana Manoushagian to replace Lesa Warren on the Decatur Hospital Authority board, completing a term that runs through Dec. 31, 2015.

They will also hear the city’s outside audit report from CPA Scott Siegmund and discuss canceling the March 24 meeting of the council.

Brett Cheatham, representing the Decatur Rotary Club, will request closing the 100 block of Main Street on Saturday, May 10, for a 5K and fun run, and Police Chief Rex Hoskins will give the council an update on the city’s new notification system and request direction.

The meeting will be held at City Hall, 201 E. Walnut St. It is open to the public.
