Placeholder Image

The Covington City Council is having a called meeting tonight at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, to address several items that were originally scheduled for the Sept. 21 meeting.

The first council meeting on the month was cancelled because of Labor Day and the Sept. 21 was getting overloaded, so the council has called a meeting for tonight. The Sept. 21 meeting will still take place at 6:30 p.m. as originally scheduled.
