COMMISSION MEETING CANCELED; RETREAT STILL ON SCHEDULE
Covington City Commissioner Shawn Masters tells the River City News that Tuesday's Commission meeting is canceled. However, the Mayor & Commissioners will have their retreat and caucus meeting at the Radisson Riverfront this week. The cancellation of the commission meeting follows the postponement of a disciplinary hearing involving a police officer. So, the busy week that was predicted for the Commission on Sunday has been cut by half -- but the retreat should be interesting.
