Tuesday, Augusta Commissioners are expected to make a final decision on exempting the mayor’s new city vehicle from the state requirement to put a city decal on it.
At a public hearing last week, two speakers opposed removing the city logo from the truck, but the final say belongs to city leaders.
“I would have to kind of vote with the public, because the public say they want it on the vehicle. They’re paying for it indirectly so I would have to vote with the public,” says Commissioner Dennis Williams.
Under the state law, if commissioners exempt the decal it’s only for a year, then after the 12 months commissioners would hold another public hearing to before determine if it stays off the vehicle.
