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.
