Council set to OK tax rates Monday; Moore wants to discuss points from May forum, other topics

Tax rates are on the agenda for the Midway City Council's next meeting, to be held Monday, Aug. 1, at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall.

According to a notice from the city, the meeitng agenda includes ordinances on the tax rates for real estate and personal property; an incentive program for officials to get training related to city government; and the event permit for the Woodford County Farmers' Market.

As usual, citizens' comments will be taken before the agenda items are addressed. Anyone wishing to address the council "must request to be on the agenda and submit any information" by noon on the Wednesday before the meeting, according to the notice from the city, which also notes, "The agenda can be revised up to 24 hours before the meeting."

UPDATE, July 28: Becky Moore asked her fellow council members in an email if the meeting would also include, as she said Council Member Joy Arnold requested at the last meeting, a discussion of the points raised at the council's public forum in May.

In another email, she asked if Brad McLean and Charlann Wombles of the Woodford County Economic Development Authority could be added to the agenda to give "an update on EDA business" and invite Magistrate Larry Craig of Midway to talk about redistricting of the county Fiscal Court.

The Midway Messenger and The Woodford Sun, which receive email notices of the meetings, were on the distribution list for Moore's emails. They were sent Wednesday morning; the Messenger received no replies to either of them through midnight Thursday.
