    Hodgenville City Council adopted a pair of municipal orders Monday – and tabled a third.
    The council members voted to identify all City vehicles with a “City of Hodgenville” decal “placed prominently on the front door on each side if the vehicle has doors. If the vehicle does not have doors or the decal would obstruct the operator’s vision, then it will be placed where the decal is readily visible to the public.”
    The vehicles are to be numbered in a similar fashion and display standard government license plates.
