An Even Better Canton

Written by Mayor Gene Hobgood

A new year is under way. The City of Canton now has a new City council with a new direction and a renewed energy.  We have so much to accomplish! At the first council meeting held on January 2, the council reinstated its council meeting policy. This policy allows for a "work session" meeting on the first Thursday of the month and a "voting session" on the third Thursday of the month. The purpose of the two sessions will give the council more time to deliberate and understand an issue before taking action. It will also allow for more opportunities for public input, which is essential for the council to make a good decision.
