Fire Discussion Today, Recount Tomorrow
Find out what's coming up on Canton-Sixes Patch today and what you might have missed overnight.
1. A meeting "to begin the development of a 5-10 year fire services plan" will be held at 10 a.m. today at City Hall. That was one of the requests from seniors who pleaded with the Canton City Council to postpone a vote to override the mayor's veto of a controversial fire district ordinance that critics fear will erase a decade of voter-approved senior tax exemptions. The council proceeded with the vote.
4. The city of Canton has an opening for a staff engineer. Look for details when we post today's job alert at 3 p.m.
5. Upload a photo and a few words about what makes your dog the tops among Georgia Patch pooches. You have until 5 p.m. Aug. 20 to submit a photo for a chance to win a $100 gift card and some Patch swag.
