ABBEVILLE: The Mayor of Abbeville and members of the Abbeville City Council had their regular scheduled meeting tonight.
Many expected the Mayor and Council to name a new Police Chief for Abbeville tonight. That issue was postpone until the next council meeting.
Abbeville Mayor Jimmy Money said that he had COVID, a member of the City Council was reported to have had COVID, and a candidate that was to be interviewed had COVID so that interview had to be postponed.
Mayor Money and members of the Abbeville City Council has not made a choice for Abbeville Police Chief since taking office on November 1. Mayor Crawford said waiting two more weeks would not hurt.
Abbeville has been without a Police Chief since sometime in April when then Abbeville Mayor Billy Helms and the Abbeville City Council terminated the Police Chief.
At election time the registered voters of Abbeville terminated Mayor Helms and only one councilman returned as a council member. So the registered voters of Abbeville were not very happy with then Mayor Billy Helms and members of the Abbeville City Council.
Since taking over the reigns as Mayor of Abbeville, Jimmy Money has displayed outstanding signs of leadership and the members of the Abbeville City Council have appeared to have been working great together.
In two weeks a police chief is expected to be named.
