Tonight, during the August 20th Ellijay City Council meeting, the Ellijay City Council reappointed Larry Adams to the Ellijay Housing Authority.
Ellijay City Council Mayor Al Hoyle informed the council during tonight's meeting that the Ellijay Housing Authority had requested for Larry Adams to maintain his position as a member of the authority. After hearing the authority's request, city council member Al Fuller motioned for Adams to maintain his position, followed by a second by council member Katie Lancey. The council then unanimously approved the motion.
Adams' position as a member of the Ellijay Housing Authority expired on August 11th which was the reason for the reappointment. His new term will expire August 11th, 2017.
FYN will bring you more information from tonight's Ellijay City Council meeting as soon as possible.
How and on what merit are these postions filled? Are these positions advertised as being open for others to submit their qualifications for consideration or is this just another "good'ol boy" appointment??
It would have been nice for some real discussion to be had at this meeting, I guess that would have slowed down the 8 minute meeting - how much do we pay these people for their service or lack of?
Councilman "Name Withheld" please refrain from wearing your "Blue Ridge Georgia" shirt when taking part on official ELLIJAY business, it just doesn't look good, being a paid elected official of Ellijay. You may want to consider Blue Ridge for your next election.
JS if you had paid attention the the shirt you would have seen that it was not a Blue Ridge Ga shirt but that it was a Company logo shirt from Blueridge Industries also know as Blueridge Carpet/Courier Dying and Printing of Ellijay GA. Sad day when the reporter goes to a council meeting to report the news and all he can report is what kind of shirt the councilman is wearing. I think there is more important news to report.
I just wanted to let you know that JS is not me. As a reporter I would never comment on my own story unless it was something necessary like this. I'm sorry for the misunderstanding and confusion. I was afraid when somebody read that comment that they were going to think it was me. We allow people to comment with there initials if they supply their ip adress and an email which that person did. Again, I am sorry for the misunderstanding and I hope you still continue to read fetchyournews.com
