Pulaski Town Council has elected to hold its closed session at the Tuesday May 7 meeting at 6 p.m. instead of later at the end of the 7 p.m. legislative session.
This is the first legislative meeting of the council since Town Manager John Hawley went on leave as of April 16, the date of the last meeting. Hawley is scheduled to come back to work next week on Tuesday.
The council has announced via the agenda that they will go into closed session to discuss personnel and legal matters.
Council still has the right to change the agenda and move the closed session back to its accustomed place at the end of the legislative session at its convenience.
The current council agenda for the legislative session includes project updates on the Dora Highway community development block grant, the tornado community development block grant, the dropsite, Iron Bridge Trail, the joint dispatch study and the joint tax collection study.
Old business includes entry fees, articles of incorporation and bylaws for the Raymond F. Ratcliffe Memorial Transportation Museum.
New business will be the filling of a code compliance position, designating a building official, the appointment of a building official to the tornado management team and a request from New River Valley Planning District Commission for an appropriation to participate in a mapping and flood grant program.
