Although there were no injuries, there were several homes without power for a few hours. Electric Director Poole added he has a bid award on the regular agenda for a new bucket truck to replace a 2005 model truck.


Building Official Larson stated there is a public hearing followed by a vote on the regular agenda for a special exception to allow a church at 514 North Harris Street which is a portion of the Sandersville Elementary School building. The Planning and Zoning Board unanimously approved the special exception. Building Official Larson explained that churches are allowed by special exception in all zones except I-2.


City Administrator Report:

City Administrator McCorkle stated that the Finance Department is currently working on the audit.


Mayor and Council Reports

Mayor Andrews stated there have been several issues and complaints about the garbage service. These complaints include not replacing broken carts, not delivering carts to new customers, missing pick-up, and not picking up bulk items. City staff members will meet with the garbage contractor, Advanced Disposal, later this week to discuss the issues. City Administrator McCorkle added the contract with Advanced Disposal will expire at the end of this year and the City will bid out this service.


Mayor Andrews stated that CID Captain Ken Parker will give a report on the drug activity at the June 18th Council meeting.


Other Business:

Willie Ann Montford stated the lot next to her house needs to be cleaned up. Building Official Larson will take a look at this.


Mayor Andrews advised the Council Members to think about the request from the Sandersville Building Authority for the matching grant funding in the amount of $16,700. Mayor Andrews passed out a sheet with bullet points about their request. He stated that he would like for Council to be prepared to make a decision, possibly at the next meeting, as to whether they will pledge the funding.


Council Member Dennis joined the work session at 4:50 p.m.


The Mayor and Council Member further discussed the funding request for the Sandersville School Building in detail.


Mayor Andrews adjourned the Working Session at 5:00 p.m.
