Also, the council approved a special retail liquor license for The Market in downtown Troy. This special license was required because The Market’s full-service bar will be connected to its retail store, with both locations using the same entrance.

The council also declared an emergency for a roof leak at the historic Academy Street School, which is currently in the process of being refurbished by the city. This roof leak is located in the old gymnasium and Mayor Jason Reeves said that the city risks more damages – like mold – if the roof is not repaired immediately. The declaration of emergency allows for the city to get the repairs taken care of immediately.

The council approved the purchase of an electric vehicle charger to be placed at City Hall for the utility department’s electric vehicles, which were authorized for purchase at the previous city council meeting. Also, the council approved a resolution to enter into a training program agreement, which could see the city reimbursed for wastewater certification programs for its employees.

The council also approved the surplus of Fire Department equipment, which will be used as trade-in value for future equipment purchases.

All resolutions were approved 4-0 as Council President Greg Meeks was unable to attend the meeting.

The next city council meeting will be held at 5:00 p.m. at Troy City Hall in the council chambers on June 28. A work session will be held upstairs at Troy City Hall at 4 p.m.
