Ellis explains his Chief of Police resignation
Tuesday, 07.15.2014, 12:59pm
“I stepped down for the good of the department. It seemed I had become somewhat of a focal point and the city and department were getting lost in the shuffle. I essentially stepped down in an attempt to put principles above personalities,” said William Ellis, referring to his decision to step down from his elected position as Chief of Police and his salaried position of Watch Commander.

Last week’s July Minco City Council meeting produced a fair amount of progress, the most exciting of which was the council’s approval of an agreement between the City of Minco and Minco Schools which will lead to the City building a new water tower. 
Dilapidated Home Demolished
Tuesday, 07.08.2014, 01:04pm
A house that was “the pride of Minco for years,” as Larry Malcom describes it, was demolished on Monday after taking the toll of years of vacancy and neglect.
The house, located on the southwest corner of North Street and Highway 81, had been known as the Wegener home. Raymond Lee “Chick” Wegener, who passed away last week at the age of 87, was born in that house and lived there for 60 years, Malcom said.

Law tanks water tower
Thursday, 02.27.2014, 04:56pm

What seemed to be a perfect team effort between the City of Minco and the Minco Public School District addressing water pressure issues at the new high school as well as the rest of the city has turned out to be a legal impossibility.

The Minco City Council unanimously approved city financial contributions to the construction of a new water tower at its February 3 meeting.. The new water tower project would have replaced the 115-foot-tall tower on Main Street with a 150-foot-tall construction, improving storage capacity from 50,000 to 150,000 gallons. The council’s vote in the February City Council meeting approved the movement of $280,000 from the reserve fund to the general fund to pay for the city’s portion of the cost. 

The  project replaced an earlier plan to build a standpipe which would have mainly benefitted the school. 

“The money we are going to spend is so much more valuable to the city. At this point the city is contributing $280,000 and the school is contributing the rest. The total for the water tower project is between $350,000 and $400,000. The total is around $900,000 for the water tower, pipe and pumps,” Minco Schools Superintendent said after the Council approved the project.

But the plan has run aground after consultation with the school’s bond attorney as well as the Assistant Attorney General and Grady County District Attorney Jason Hicks.
