AUGUSTA – City officials have pulled a scheduled discussion of aquaculture from Thursday night’s City Council agenda.

Mayor William Stokes said, because of public interest in the aquaculture issue, several councilors asked that it be discussed at a televised meeting. But Thursday’s meeting is not scheduled to be televised.

So, instead of discussing the issue Thursday, it will instead be rescheduled for a televised council meeting in March, according to City Manager William Bridgeo.

That leaves only two items for Thursday’s informational council meeting: A resident’s request to speak to councilors; and an update from Larry Fleury, president of the Augusta Downtown Alliance, about the recent art walk held in downtown Augusta.
