The Feb. 13 Linden City Council meeting had a standing-room-only attendance of more than 60 citizens.

At issue was a proposed repeal of an amendment to the Linden Economic Development Corporation (LEDC) bylaws that was approved by the council in December.

During the meeting, Linden City Attorney Gary Albertson spoke about the December amendment of the LEDC bylaws, which imposed new term limits on LEDC board members.

“The thing that was brought to me was apparently there was a situation where some term limits were voted on at the last city council meeting, there were some questions if that was a lawful vote or whether or not the city council had the authority to take that action,” Albertson said, “It is my legal opinion that you (the council) do not have the authority to change their bylaws currently as they are written.”

Atlanta Woman’s Club honors McGee

The January meeting of the Atlanta Woman’s Club was held at The Wesley House, where the club honored one of its associate members, Louise McGee.  
Mrs. McGee was honored recently on her 102nd birthday, but the focus of this meeting was to recognize Mrs. McGee for her long years of teaching in Atlanta.  
The group reminisced about Mrs. McGee’s love for teaching plays from Mexico.  
If you were a student in Mrs. McGee’s fourth-grade class in 1970 at Atlanta Primary School, your assignment was to write a Mexican play called “A Day in School in Mexico.”
