Brookhaven City Council will meet virtually at 1 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 30, to clarify the definition of parcels in its Special Service District ordinance.

The council approved the ordinance creating the city’s Special Service District on Dec. 14. The meeting will clarify the definition of parcels and establish an effective date.
