Cadiz Mayor Lyn Bailey was absent from last Tuesday’s city council meeting, having had heart valve surgery last month at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn. He is still recovering, and although City Clerk Lisa Rogers said Bailey was in the office for a bit last Monday, he didn’t feel up to attending last Tuesday.

“Under Kentucky law, in the mayor’s absence, the city council elects one of its own members to preside in his absence,” City Attorney Allen Wilson said. “That person will still retain voting privileges throughout tonight’s meeting.”

As the council member who has served the longest, Cadiz City Councilor Frankie Phillips was voted by fellow council members to serve as chairman in Bailey’s stead.

Phillips presided over the actual city council meeting and just prior to that a public hearing over how municipal road aid and LGEA (Local Government Economic Assistance) funds might be used. No one commented during the hearing, which lasted less than a minute.

Property tax rates in the City of Cadiz are not likely to change much when the Cadiz City Council votes on the matter.
