Columbus City Council reviews future projects and proposed ordinance

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The Columbus City Council met Tuesday and reviewed projects that are underway in the city and a proposed ordinance.

Much of the focus of the meeting was on the project to revitalize Claflin School. A developer from the consulting firm working with Claflin was in attendance to give an update on the progress.

In addition to the Claflin project, the city manager proposed a few positions be eliminated effective Jan 2018 when Columbus' new mayor, Skip Henderson, takes office.

The council also mentioned the referendum to pass the ordinance for restaurants to sell alcohol 11 a.m. instead of 12:30 p.m. on Sundays. If the ordinance passes in November, the referendum will automatically go into effect.
