The council also approved an ordinance levying a privilege or license tax against anyone engaged in the business of selling tangible personal property at retail or places of amusement providing for the collection of the taxes in Jemison.

The council also voted to reinstate full coverage single health insurance to all full-time employees.

City clerk Sheila Hogge said employees had been paying 40 percent of the single health insurance from July 2012 and the city now had enough funds to cover full coverage.

Deputy Police Chief Marc McMinn reminded council members the 10-week Citizens Police Academy started on Feb. 19 at 6 p.m. at Jemison City Hall.

The purpose of the Citizens Academy is to build a community relationship with the residents of Jemison as well inform those within the community about the police department.

McMinn invited council members to attend the opening night and said there are still spaces available for anyone interested in attending.

For more information on the academy, contact McMinn at 688-4491 ext. 314 or email
