The St. Marys City Council met on Monday evening and held two separate sessions. The first session was the first public hearing on the Community Development Block Grant, and the second discussed both new legislation, as well as the recurring issue of parking downtown.
The Community Development Block Grant public hearing started at 6:15 p.m., and almost immediately opened to public comment. Director of Public Safety and Service Gregory
