The presidents of Cartersville Primary and Elementary School PTC’s continued to press the city to hire a school resource officer to be shared by both schools. Mayor Matt Santini assured Elizabeth Bowen and Nikki Murphy that the council was aware of their concerns and were working to provide a solution.
The council also:
• approved a $50,031 contract renewal with Cogsdale, a Chicago-based company that provides and maintains customer service and utility billing software. Finance director Tom Rhinehart noted the 2013 cost was $4,100 less than the 2012 billing.
• approved a proclamation recognizing Gene Lewis for his 30-year tenure as a member of the Board of Zoning Appeals. Lewis served on the board from 1982 to 2012.
