City to canvass election returns
In a special called meeting at 5 p.m. Tuesday, the Livingston City Council will canvass the May 6 general election, administer the oaths of office, issue certificates of election and elect a mayor pro-tem for the coming year. As Livingston is a Type A General Law City, newly-elected officers may not assume the duties of the office until at least the fifth day after the election, excluding Sundays. This is why these items could not be done at the city’s regular May 9 meeting.
In response to a request for proposals for waste collection and disposal, Council heard from representatives of Piney Woods Sanitation, Pro Star Waste/Waste Connections and Republic Services during the May 9 regular meeting. Council will discuss and consider awarding a contract for waste collection and disposal services.
Council will discuss and consider action on proposed resolutions approving the submission of two grants – one for the rifle-resistant body armor grant to the Office of the Governor (Grant No. 4841301) and the other for the DJ-Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant to the Office of the Governor (Grant No. 4855901).
A proposed resolution setting a public hearing to receive public comment in response to a petition to close a portion of North East Avenue by Central Baptist Church of Livingston will be discussed and considered for possible action.
Council will also consider action on a proposed resolution setting a public hearing to receive public comment in response to a petition for the annexation of 34.04 acres of land on the M.L. Choate Survey, A-15, and the Bridger Hobbs Survey, A-327, submitted by Eternal Holdings LLC.
An executive session is on the agenda for Council to consult with the city attorney. Any action, however, will be taken upon return to open session.
