City Council meeting (June 25, 2013)

Here are photographs from the City Council meeting of June 25, 2013, the final meeting of the current four-year term of the city’s elected leaders. At the outset of the meeting, Mayor A.J. Holloway thanked councilmembers for their years of service, especially the five departing members — Councilmembers Bill Stallworth, Lucy Denton, Clark Griffith, Arlene Wall and Ed Gemmill. Also, during the meeting, FEMA presented an award to the city for improving its flood-insurance rating from a 6 to a 5, affording flood-zone residents a 25 percent discount on flood insurance and a 10 percent citywide discount.
