Update: The Mayor’s Tahoe now displays decals.
Augusta Commissioners vote to put city decals on the Mayor’s new SUV.
After a public hearing they will decide if they should stay or be removed.
Mayor Davis was driving the Tahoe Wednesday without decals.
State law requires them on government vehicles, but they can be exempted following a public hearing.
So the commissioners voted to have a public hearing April 30th.
Something the Mayor has been against.
“At the end of the day, we’ll have a hearing on the 30th and we’ll move forward,” said Mayor Davis.
“You were violating state law that said the decal should be on the vehicle.”
“And what’s your point,” said Mayor Davis.
“Why is the decal not on the vehicle?”
“They don’t have one so when the get one, they’ll put it on there,” said Mayor Davis.
“Should you be driving it if the commission said to put the decal on there and then the public hearing?”
“Absolutely,” said Mayor Davis.
The city Fleet Manger has a temporary city decal ready and is waiting to get up with the Mayor to attached it to the vehicle.
He says the city will get a permanent one if commissioners vote not to have it removed.
