August 7--  Lyons' new city manager was sworn into the job Tuesday night.  Jason Hall (left) took the oath from city attorney Bruce Durden at the monthly city council meeting.


The council set a qualifying fee of $54 for candidates who qualify for the November 5th city council election.  Qualifying dates are August 26th through the 30th at the Toombs County Board of Elections, 125 West Lincoln Street.  City Council seats up for election are in Ward 1 now held by Tracy Johnson, Ward 2 occupied by Ben Mitchell and Ward 4 with incumbent Wayne Hartley.

The council turned down a request from Municipal Court Judge Paul Cook to raise his monthly salary from $350 to $650 a month, however, it agreed to make him a counter offer of $500 a month subject to review in 12 months.

The city will open bids for resurfacing of five streets August 29th at eleven a.m.  The streets are West Columbia, Hilton Drive, West Trapnell, West Toombs and South Lanier.
