Chief Officer of the Providence Code Enforcement Board resigns

Providence Council held a routine regular session Monday night in the council chambers with all members present.
The council accepted the resignation of Gary Myrick, Chief Officer of the Code Enforcement Board. Myrick had severed in the capacity since January 2008. He drew praise from Mayor Eddie Gooch for a “job well done”.
“We certainly want to thank Gary for an outstanding job. His hard work and expertise has certainly been appreciated and has definitely made a huge difference in the beautification of Providence,” noted Mayor Eddie Gooch. “Gary will certainly be missed.”
City officials are currently accepting applications for the part-time postion that will be vacated by Myrick.
In other business, the annual city audit was postponed due to inclimate weather and will be presented at the March 17 meeting.
Providence Fire Chief Brad Curry informed council members that the new ambulance should be delivered next week. It will be the newest of the fleet of two ambulances, with the city purchasing a new ambulance every five years.
In final business, Councilman Scott Frederick noted that he had received complaints about multiple thefts on Thompson Street. After a brief discussion, Mayor Gooch said the city would increase police patrols of the area.
The council then adjourned to executive session for the dicussion of possible litigation, returning to regular session with no action to report.
