The Grayville City Council met for the first time in 2017 on Monday night. Prior to the meeting, a revolving loan committee meeting was held, where members discussed delinquent loan accounts.
Following the treasurer’s report, the Council went into executive session to discuss the committee findings. Coming out of the executive session, City Attorney Jay Walden explained that his recommendation to the Council would be for Mayor Joe Bisch and Commissioner David Jordan to be allowed to meet with those owners of delinquent accounts and present plans so those loans can be made current without further action. A motion to allow that was passed unanimously.
In other business, Walden informed the Council that he was working with Police Chief Roy Mann and Edwards County States Attorney Eric St. Ledger about a sensitive civil case subpoena, and wanted the Council to be aware of the situation.
The meeting adjourned at 7:14 and the Grayville City Council will next meet Monday, January 23 at 7 pm.
