The City Council held its regular monthly meeting.

The council voted to purchase the Historic Elks Lodge building on West Washington Street for $150,000 from the Fred and Margaret Carl Foundation. Greenwood Utilities will provide the $150,000 for the purchase.

Another resolution regarding removal of the Confederate Memorial Statue from the courthouse lawn was adopted, but not without an argument breaking out. Lisa Cookston said another resolution was unnecessary, and she expressed concern about the cost of the removal. Council member David Jordan stated that it didn't matter how much it costs, it should never have been there to begin with. Council President Ronnie Stevenson cut off debate and the resolution was adopted. Ms. Cookston voted against the resolution, and Johnny Jennings abstained.
