Committee to work on sidewalk ordinance at 6 p.m. Sun.; budget ordinance likely at council meeting Mon.

The discussion among Midway City Council members and Mayor Grayson Vandegrift over how to handle the city's sidewalk problems is coming to a head.

The special Sidewalk Committee of the council that Vandegrift appointed last fall will meet at 6 p.m. Sunday, May 15, at City Hall to discuss a draft of a proposed sidewalk ordinance, according to the official notice of the meeting.

The notice says no action will be taken, but the discussion is expected to inform the council meeting at 5:30 p.m. the next day.

At that meeting, Vandegrift hopes to present his proposed budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1 in the form of an ordinance. He has budgeted $25,000 for sidewalk repairs, and the council has not objected, but the question of when and how the city will pay for repairs has not been decided. That would be done by a sidewalk ordinance.

All committee and council meetings are open to the public.
