The City Council on Thursday voted to temporarily keep the municipality from disconnecting utility services due to nonpayment of bills.
The council did so to help ease the burden on customers anticipating economic hardships as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The council’s action is in place until revoked by the seven-member panel.
Councilman Andre Knight, who doubles as mayor pro tem, first led a work session in the council chamber on Thursday at which the subject of utilities was discussed. Mayor Sandy Roberson subsequently chaired a council meeting, also in the council chamber, at which the vote was taken.

Damn Bill West makes it about Mayor Pro-tem Andre Knight and Lige Daughtridge trying to paint a picture of Knight. Knight who called Sprecial Committee of the Whole Meeting as the out the damn meeting like a meeting suppose to be ran, he was in control.
Lige Daughtridge questions every damn thing as if somebody is always getting over on the city or things that I believe he feels he can go after other Andre Knight and Reuben Blackwell because don’t forget he is speaking for the Special Cs whom created a Racist WSBS Movement.
This is why I attend and video the meetings to folk can see what took place for themselves and make their own decision on what actually happened versus the spin Bill West and others including myself put on the the meeting.
