(EDITOR’S NOTE: Each Monday, the Sun-Gazette summarizes major votes of the past week and, more specifically, how our locally elected and appointed officials voted on each matter. Watch for it each Monday in the Sun-Gazette.)

Locally elected and appointed officials voted on the following matters in the past week:


• City Council voted 7-0 to approve a resolution with the city and Emergency Reporting, a new data entry service based in Washington state, for the city fire department, giving command staff and platoon chiefs a web-based system that quickly can access reports, files, maps of buildings and photographs of the exteriors and interiors of buildings. The cost will be about $3,200 a year. Voting in favor were President Jonathan Williamson, Randall J. Allison, Liz Miele, Joel Henderson, Bonnie Katz, Don Noviello and N. Clifford “Skip” Smith.
