The April 4th Carrollton City Council meeting was held at the Carrollton Police Department rather than city hall, due to unfinished remodeling at the normal meeting place.
Mayor Mickey Walker mentioned that the renovations to the Carrollton City Hall were almost complete, with everything set to go except some work on the windows. Walker said he fully expects the staff to be moved back into City Hall by the upcoming May council meeting.
One of the first items that Walker brought before the council was that Pickens County Medical Center hospital board chairman Shawn McDaniel had asked if the city could help the hospital in cutting its grass, due to the termination of the recent partnership with Boa Vida.
“No,” Councilman Chuck McDaniels said emphatically. “They’ve got enough help. They can Round-up it, as far as I’m concerned.”
Councilman Phillip Trull then made a motion that the City of Carrollton deny the request to help mow the hospital’s grass. The motion passed unanimously.
Walker then discussed the lot that was given to the city by the industrial board in front of the Pickens County Department of Human Resources building.
