The Council discussed the franchise agreement with Adelphia Cable. Some members sharply criticized the cable company, while others pointed out that the market is open, but no other company wishes to come to Greenwood to compete with Adelpha. Mr. Jordan assured the Council that another company can be brought to Greenwood, and he intends to do so. The Council voted to extend the current franchise through August. The lack of bids for cleaning up the cemetaries was discussed. The council agreed to allow city workers to begin the work of cleanup. A sharp dispute broke out between Mr. Jordan and Mrs. Williamson regarding her claim that she had been unfairly blamed for the failure to clean up the cemetaries. A Change Order on the Medallion Connector Street project was approved, with Mr. Jordan complaining that too much money is being spent on the project in that part of town. The Council adopted a proclamation for City Clerks Week.
