Hardy City Council finalized the 2016 budget, which took up most of the discussion at the meeting held on Wednesday, Jan. 20. Council entered executive session near the end of the meeting to discuss the appointment of a director of public safety.
The council moved to executive session to discuss hiring a new director of public safety. Though an appointment wasn’t made, a promotion that is nearly one year behind, was finally approved by the council. “Approve the promotion of Tamara Taylor to assistant chief as presented by chief Hutchinson on Feb. 17, 2015,” is the motion made when the council returned to regular session. The motion was unanimously passed by council.
