The Lawrenceville City Council Thursday night approved the annual appropriation ordinance of approximately $6.1 million on 1st reading. That total represents a 2.3% increase over the previous years ordinance according to Mayor Don Wagner.  There will be a public hearing on the ordinance prior to the June council session with passage possible at the meeting. Mayor Wagner reported to the council that the state has informed him that the city should anticipate a revenue loss of from anywhere from 15 to 50 percent in the future due to the pandemic. The council approved a resolution supporting the application of two city businesses-Cannons Furniture and Sanders Chiropratic-for $25,000 grants each from the Downstate Small Business Stabilization Program. Those applications are being made through the city. The mayor also announced that the city wide cleanup is slated to begin on Monday June 1st and last 2 weeks.
