The agenda for the Cave City Council meeting for the month of September was full and kept the mayor and council busy as they moved from topic to topic. The agenda included several guest speakers including Maureen Carpenter Executive Director of the Economic Board, Heath Crawford from Scotty’s Contracting, Richard Tutt from American Engineer, and Chad Wilson a local community activist.
Carpenter addressed the Cave City Council about the new specs and rebidding process for work and improvements to take place on a site nearby the Cave City Convention Center.
Five of the six council members were present at the start of the meeting. Councilwoman, Mary Ford, was attending remotely until audio technical difficulties prevented her from hearing and voting on several issues. Ford abstained from voting on the first issue because she did not hear the discussion. The source of the audio connection issue was addressed from the council’s end but, Ford did not return to the meeting. The exact source of the difficulties was uncertain.
