Council passed first reading for city's first Bailey bill application
Placeholder Image
Camden City Council gave first reading approval to the city’s first applicant for special property tax assessment under the city’s new Bailey Bill ordinance during its November 8 meeting. Because one councilmember, Deborah Davis, was absent due to illness and the fact that it was Election Day and two members of council, Alfred Mae Drakeford and Laurie Parks were candidates for the office of Mayor, at first it was thought council would not have a quorum of members. However, Drakeford was able to attend and Mayor Tony Scully, Drakeford and Councilman Jeffrey Graham voted to approve first reading of the application.
