The city of Claremont started the month off on a strong foot with a full city council meeting on Monday, April 1.

The meeting started with Mayor David Morrow approving two proclamations. Early Childhood Education and Child Abuse Protection Month were approved as Morrow said parents are the first and best teachers to their children. The second proclamation went hand-in-hand with the idea of bettering children’s lives. Morrow said the proclamation would help to make sure every family have everything they need, keep children safe and make a change for the better.

Morrow also made a point to thank the Claremont Police Department for keeping the city safe. While doing so, Morrow and the city awarded Claremont Police Sgt. Duane Cozzen. Council also approved the awarding of Chief Gerald Tolbert his badge and sidearms for retirement. The city approved to officially dedicate the items on April 27.
