GALLATIN CITY COUNCIL ORDINANCE NO. 02006-27 WILL NOT BE HELD ON AUGUST 4 MEETING
This item was initially scheduled for a Council Committee meeting on July 14th, but the item was deferred. It was also not considered at the July 28th Council Committee meeting because that meeting was cancelled; however, the Ordinance was advertised in the paper on July 16th for a public hearing on Aug. 4. We will re-advertise the public hearing on a schedule that does not consider a potential deferral.
