CORDOVA — The Cordova City Council voted earlier this week to send Mayor Jack Scott and another city employee to Illinois in July to learn about sewer plant construction.

Scott said during Tuesday’s council meeting that the engineer handling the city’s new sewer project would also be attending the two-day seminar.

Council member Drew Gilbert asked what costs would be associated with the trip. Scott said plane fare would be provided by the organizers of the seminar but the city would likely have to pay for accommodations.

“It’s well worth going because there are so many different sewer plants out there, and we need to see what they have to offer,” Scott said.

In other action, the council granted a business license to the new owner of the Texaco on Horse Creek Boulevard and hired a full-time police officer.

Scott also announced that Cordova Drug is expected to reopen at its new location near the medical clinic on Monday, and council members praised the reopening of Jeff and Von’s Place.

Also, Tuesday is the first day to qualify as a candidate for a mayor or council seat. Qualifying ends July 17.
