CRESTVIEW—Explaining that three upcoming Crestview City Council meetings fall on holidays, City Clerk Betsy Roy requested that the council consider canceling or moving some of the meetings. State law requires city leaders to meet at least monthly, she said.
The Columbus Day observance on Oct. 8 is federal but not city holiday, Roy said. Veterans Day, observed Nov. 12, is a federal and city holiday; and city offices will close on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, the date of the scheduled second meeting of December.
Councilman Thomas Gordon moved to leave the Oct. 8 and Oct. 22 meetings as set, which was unanimously approved. Councilwoman Robyn Helt then moved to cancel the meetings on Nov. 12 and Dec. 24, which also passed unanimously.
Councilman Charles Baugh Jr. said if necessary, Mayor David Cadle could call a special meeting for November or December, which would only have one regularly scheduled meeting each.
