City of Nelson Council Meeting ~ April 4, 2016
1985 Kennesaw Ave. ~ Nelson, GA 30151

HIGHLIGHTS (time in meeting)

- A 'few' council members, based on phone calls on Friday, decided against sending Police Chief Mark Riehl to police training that started on Monday. Now his post certification is suspended and no longer has arrest powers, able to write citations or tickets, answer 911 calls, patrol, or anything else as an officer with the State of Georgia. He will have to file an appeal with Georgia Post and It could be months before this will be rectified. (5:27) UPDATE: Powers Reinstated

- Mayor Larry Ray was not present at the meeting and Jackie Jarrett is Mayor Pro Tem. Mike Haviland initiated a vote to elect a new Mayor Pro Tem, and Tina Monaghan was elected. (41:47)

- Verification from the State that they are accepting their corrective action plan and will waive audit report findings for one year. It is the responsibilty of the city to clearly show correction to those findings during that time. (4:33) UPDATE: Jackie Jarrett resigned from Council.
