Midway residents will have another chance to learn about the proposed countywide fire and rescue plan and to ask questions at a town hall meeting Nov. 28 at 6 p.m. at the county’s East End Community Complex.
Mayor Levern Clancy Jr. said that County Administrator Joey Brown, Public Safety Director Mike Hodges and Fire Chief Brian Darby are available to attend.
Midway officials have discussed fire and rescue protection numerous times over the years.
In other business Tuesday, the Midway council heard from City Attorney Reginald Martin about proposed security agreements between Midway and the county recreation department and Midway Middle School.
Martin will review contracts for questions like wearing of city police uniforms at events.
The council adopted on second reading minor changes in the flood ordinance to bring Midway into compliance with state law. The new ordinance, for example, replaces the word building with the word structure.
Preliminary approval was given for operation of a family restaurant at the former location of the Skybox near the intersection of U.S. Highway 17 and U.S. Highway 84. Details including adequate parking remain to be worked out.
The Clancy family has been working to get the county to take over maintenance of Clancy Lane in Midway. When this matter comes up Mayor Clancy turns over the gavel to Mayor Pro Tempore Dr. Clemontine Washington and leaves the room.
