BG council takes limited action
Bowling Green City Council was limited in what action it could take Monday night because two members were
absent.
The only votes were to approve a contract with a lobbying firm, the Ferguson Group, in Washington, D.C.,
at a cost of $5,000 a month, and to amend the Community Reinvestment Area regarding tax exemptions.
Reports from city administrators were also short because of several absences.
Council may have to call one or two special meetings to give financial-based legislation second and third
readings in a timely manner.
The meeting started 15 minutes late because of a committee meeting, and lasted less than 15 minutes.
