More government-related coverage came in the form of our stories on the April 26 Paulding Board of Commissioners meeting, at which officials approved a rezoning to allow for a dog care facility; and Tuesday’s gathering of the Hiram City Council, which saw councilmen adopt a monthly pay schedule for elected officials.
