Ludowici business focuses on police department
Placeholder Image
At its June 10 meeting, the Ludowici City Council made items regarding the police department the top priority.
The council addressed the increase in the number of residents driving golf carts and similar vehicles within city limits. Ludowici Police Chief Richard Robertson said he would draft an ordinance proposing golf cart owners pay the city a $50 yearly permit fee to register, inspect and drive the vehicles.
Council member Gwendolyn Davis spoke of a complaint she had received about tires being dumped at a cemetery in the city limits.  After a brief discussion, it was decided that Robertson would look into the issue and increase patrols in the area.
Councilman A.A. Billings was approved to fill the vacant position on the Ludowici Police Committee after from last month's resignation of Frank McClelland Jr.
The Council also approved the continued temporary employment of Officer Frank Cloninger.
     In other business, the Council approved researching the possibility of having wireless Internet installed at City Hall, and approved having City Clerk Tarra Manning contact the Department of Transportation about removing the island on Highway 84 in front of the IGA.
