Midway council doubleheader Monday
Midway seal

The Midway City Council, having skipped several meetings recently, will deal with city business in doubleheader council sessions at 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. sessions on Monday.

The agenda for the morning meeting includes a presentation on countywide fire presentation by Liberty County Administrator Joey Brown. Brown has made many such presentations, formal and informal, describing benefits the city of Midway would get by signing on to the county plan. Other morning topics are regular reports by city department heads.

At the evening session, Mayor Levern Clancy will present an update on Midway’s city hall multi-complex building project. Clancy will also cover difficulties experienced with the water meter used for billing water that Midway furnishes to the Liberty County Development Authority. There have been continual problems with the meter and its installation and repairs, causing disputes over the amount of water bills to the LCDA.

The council plans to decide Monday whether Midway voters should be allowed to determine whether alcohol can be sold on Sundays.

After a closed-door session, the council hopes to decide on a new city attorney, police officer and administrative clerk for Midway. Midway has been without an attorney since December 2017.

Midway normally has two council meetings each month, a regular 6 p.m. session on the second Monday of each month and a morning workshop at 9 a.m. on the fourth Monday of each month. A quorum would not have been present had the council assembled on July 9 and the meeting that would have been June 25 was cancelled because the Georgia Municipal Association was holding its convention in Savannah.

Midway council meetings are held in the police department building at 10490 E. Oglethorpe Highway and are open to the public.
