A public hearing was held Monday night at the Waynesboro City council meeting for residents to talk about the controversial bond referendum projects.

However, there was a problem when no one showed up to speak. Holding the public hearing is a legal requirement for the city and many thought supporters and opposers of the bond projects would be there, which didn't happen.

City Councilwoman Lorie Smith says she thinks most people in the city are in favor of the projects, which include building a new fire substation and improving the storm water system.

Smith says the next move will be made in two weeks. She hopes the projects will get passed so work can begin.

Four out of the five council members need to vote to pass the projects, and it is expected that all five will vote in favor.

However, as Smith points out that council members can change their minds at any time. She is just hoping no one does before the vote in two weeks.
