Dalton council to honor soccer team

The Dalton City Council plans to honor the Dalton High School 2014 state soccer champions when it meets Monday at 6 p.m. at city hall.

Mayor Pro Tem George Sadosuk is scheduled to issue a proclamation honoring the Dalton High School Catamounts soccer team, which clinched its second straight Class 4A state championship last month.

The proclamation will recognize June 2 as “Catamounts Soccer Team Day,” and team members are expected to attend the meeting.

Council members are also expected to vote on:

• A recommendation from the city pension board to renew an agreement with Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. for withholding and payment of insurance premiums from some of those receiving payments from the pension plan.

• A recommendation from the Dalton-Whitfield Planning Commission to rezone .22 acres at the northeast corner of Felice Street and Arbella Street to restricted commercial from high-density residential. City Administrator Ty Ross said developers plan to expand parking for a nearby office building.

• An amendment to the 2014 budget that, among other things, will take $75,000 from the hotel/motel tax fund for improvements on the Crescent City train car. The council approved the spending in December 2014 to match $75,000 raised by a private group to renovate the historic car, which is next to the old freight depot off Morris Street.

The council is also slated to hear the first reading of an ordinance that clarifies the role by council members who serve as liaisons to various commissions and committees appointed by the council.
