It’s “old business” on the agenda, but the Rhome City Council will continue discussions on the city’s pavilion and volunteer fire dept. when it meets Thursday.
The ordinance limiting membership on the volunteer fire dept. to no more than two city council members has been the focus of controversy in recent meetings. The measure also requires those members to recuse themselves anytime the council votes on RVFD issue.
The council will set a date to move Rescue Revenue to City Hall, and consider draft ordinances on PODS and carports.
Among the new business on Thursday’s agenda are contracts with the Wise County Elections Office and Northwest Independent School District for the May 10 council elections to be held jointly.
Another contract will finance equipment for the public works department.
The council will also order a plaque to recognize major donors for Veterans’ Park, review incentive pay and the city’s depreciation schedule, and set dates for an Easter Egg Hunt, the candidate forum and chili cookoff.
