Perry City Council lists wishes for General Assembly

The Perry City Council hammered out a list of items Tuesday that it plans to present to the Georgia General Assembly.

During their work session, the City Council members spelled out issues that the city wants the state Legislature to work on this session, including reinstating homestead exemption, possibly increasing its hotel and motel tax along with Warner Robins, reviewing the Courtney Hodges Boulevard improvement project and seeking local assistance road program funding.

The state assembly will enter into session Jan. 12.

During Tuesday’s City Council meeting, the governing body also selected City Councilman Riley Hunt to serve as Mayor Pro Tempore for the year.
