St. Mary Passes Smoking Ordinance; Pursues Water Funds

From Staff Reports

Smoking is now against the law in city-owned buildings and vehicles in St. Mary.

The St. Mary Board of Aldermen unanimously passed a resolution banning the smoking during the board’s monthly meeting last Thursday. It passed on first and second readings.

A pair of resolutions authorizing the city to pursue water and wastewater grants had previously been passed.

Mayor Carlton Wyatt explained that he had scheduled a meeting for July 12 to address these resolutions and only got two aldermen in attendance.  He declared it an emergency situation due to the fact that these grants had a close out date of July 14.  These grants take advantage of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds and are a once in a lifetime opportunity to get projects done with a minimal match.

The two aldermen missing were called and voted “yea” to approve this as well as the two aldermen present.
