Council member Sonny Posey was absent from Tuesday morning’s council meeting.

The grant money will go toward purchasing a vehicle that will be used to transport animals from the local shelter, city clerk Kathy Chambless told council members.

Fiber to the Premises (FTTP) is a form of communication delivery in which an optical fiber is run directly onto customers' premises. This method uses fiber-optic cables and associated optical electronics instead of copper wire to connect a customer to a network, then, a central office distributes an optical signal over an optical distribution network (ODN). At the end of this network, optical network terminals (ONTs) will convert the optical signal into an electrical signal. The optical network terminals are located on private property for FTTP network architectures and the signal usually travels electrically between the ONT and the end-user’s device.
