Lewis, Canton council talk First Monday problems

Canton Boy Scout Troop 378 led the Pledge of Allegiance during the Canton City Council meeting Feb. 20.

The Canton City Council met Tuesday, Feb. 20 during an onslaught of bad weather and torrential waves of rain. A lengthy agenda was on tap for council members, leading to a three-hour council meeting before business was complete.

Concerns stemming from previous council meetings were discussed, including problems created by vendors that are not city vendors, including traffic congestion and parking difficulties. City and Arbor vendors/shoppers enter and exit at the main gate.
