Rooster Cogburn addresses Gray’s City Council at last week’s meeting.
The agenda for Gray’s monthly city council meeting was routine, filled with the reading of ordinances and resolutions, until it came time for public comments.

The July 1 meeting was led by Mayor Pro Tem Loretta Lipsey, who explained that Mayor Gus Wilson was in the hospital after having chest pains earlier in the day.

Wilson had a heart catheterization done the following day and received two stents as a result of the procedure. He has since returned home and is doing well.

Two ordinances had their first reading at Monday’s meeting in order to have the question of Sunday alcohol consumption in restaurants and Sunday sale of beer and wine placed on the city’s ballot for the Nov. 5 election.

The ordinances will have their second reading and be voted on by council members in August.

Council members voted to approve a joint project with the county to rehabilitate the existing water meter vault on Joycliff Road that houses the valve that controls the water flow of Jones County water to Gray.
