The Rincon City Council emphatically promoted the continuation of the current condition of the Rincon Police Department on Monday night.
Nine months after being named interim police chief, Jonathan Murrell received a big bundle of joy.
During its June 22 meeting, the Rincon City Council opened with a tribute to longtime City Planner LaMeisha Hunter Kelly, who resigned a few days earlier to pursue another career opportunity.
City Planner LaMeisha Hunter Kelly voiced nothing but gratitude in the letter of resignation she submitted to City Manager John Klimm.
"We are a small department and we're trying to keep our guys as safe as we can,” Lt. Jonathon Murrell said.
Some city sidewalks and a second entrance to the Picket Fences subdivision are among $7.5 million in road projects Rincon will undertake if voters approve a penny-per-dollar transportation sales tax.
After a considerable amount of whittling by city staffers, a list of projects to be included in a TSPLOST referendum this fall or early next year has been approved by the Rincon City Council.
The Rincon City Council took care of a pair of urgent matters during a special called meeting Monday night. One of them qualified as an actual emergency.
There are lots of questions surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak and Mayor Ken Lee knows the answer to one of the most important ones.
Effective Friday, as a precautionary measure and to limit the possibility of COVID-19 exposure from person-to-person contact, City of Rincon offices will be closed to the public.
