City Council voted Tuesday night to adopt proposed guidelines for official recognition, which the City of Danville regularly provides for individuals, organizations, special events, a special day/month/year, or dignitaries that have an impact on Danville.

Official recognition consists of routine letters, formal letters, certificates of recognition, proclamations and keys to the city, but prior to last night's vote, no guidelines existed for issuing them.

The mayor has the authority to grant recognition. The proposed guidelines specify rules for granting recognition and the procedure for requesting recognition, but the mayor can supersede these rules should the situation warrant it.

In other matters last night, City Council voted to:

  • reappoint Jeffrey L. Bond and Arthur Craft as members of the Building Code Board of Appeal.
  • reappoint Linwood Wright and Gus Dolianitis as members of the Employee Retirement System Board of Trustees.
  • appoint Robert S. Petrick and reappoint Manuel T. Dodson as members of the Planning Commission.

Council's meeting included a business session followed by a work session. In work sessions, Council reviews non-routine matters that may be voted upon in future business meetings.

During last night’s work session, City Council scheduled for its next business meeting a vote on appointments to the Fair Housing Board, discussed a committee recommendation on renaming the Danville Public Library in honor of the late Ruby B. Archie, and reviewed special tax rates used by other localities for businesses whose primary services are storage, management and processing of digital data.

In addition, City Council held a closed meeting as allowed by state law to discuss a prospective business or industry related to economic development and to discuss personnel matters.

River City TV airs live all Council business sessions. The first rebroadcast will be at 8 p.m. Thursday. Watch it on cable (Comcast channel 10 and Gamewood channel 122). The taped broadcast is available now on River City TV’s Facebook page.

River City TV does not air work sessions, but they are open to the public.
