City meeting minutes
Mayor Platts Appoints Kaye Richardson as Council Member
Summersville city council was called to order by Mayor Ilene Platts at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, February 11. After a moment of silence in honor of Robert Richardson, Lloyd Jackson led council in prayer. The pledge of allegiance followed.
Clerk Virginia Wilbanks read the minutes of the January meeting. With no questions or discussion, motion by Jackson, second by Broce to accept the minutes as written.
Mayor Platts then appointed Kaye Richardson to fill the unexpired term of her late husband, Robert. Motion by Jackson, second by Lee to approve the appointment.
The bills were approved for payment. Clerk Jehle stated the UV lights have not been paid for because there could be additional charges for installation. The current amount is listed on the bills, however. Motion by Lee, second by Jackson to pay the bills. All voted in favor.
Guests on the agenda included Tom Watts from Wings and Suds. He asked the city's permission to be open on Sunday from 1 to 10 p.m. He said most of his employees live in Summersville and many people eat out on Sunday. At present, Wings and Suds is serving more food than alcohol. He has had no problems to date. Councilman Jackson stated that after talking to the city attorney, he found Sunday opening is regulated by state law, and all the council can do is regulate the hours. Because of the state statutes, Jackson stated he was fine with the hours suggested. Jackie Lee also agreed. Roy Broce abstained from the vote. Motion by Lee, second by Richardson to accept the Sunday hours as proposed. Mayor Platts thanked Watts for the way he was conducting his business.
