No More Flashing At Main And Cannon: Aldermen
April 7, 2010
The roll was called with all members present. Alderpersons, Fay Northcutt Knox, Lois Larimer, Dottie Duggin, Clayton Cason Charlie Harrell and Joann Davis along with Mayor Harold Patrick and city recorder Charlene Odom.
The first order of business was to approve the minutes of last month’s meeting. A motion was made by Davis and seconded by Cason to approve the minutes without being read. All voted aye.
The aldermen were asked to approved a Roadblock Permit for the Cannon County Rescue Squad for the date of weekend of the Good Ole Days. All approved. The city requires reflective clothing to be worn at all times while on the roadblock. One reason why it was easy to say yes was because the Good Ole Days will be held at the Fairgrounds near the Community Center
Roy Sullivan, the director of the Cannon County 911 Center, addressed the board to discuss the renewal of inter –local agreements for dispatch services. Sullivan said that his budget will be the same as last year.
The aldermen then considered the adoption of a Resolution (see below) authorizing the sale of the Gassaway area water lines to the Dekalb Utility District. Because money was involved the mayor directed the City Recorder to call the roll individually. All approved.
Next the Council discussed the flashing yellow light at the intersection of Main Street and Cannon Street. It was discussed with the Chief of Police Tony Burnett and decided that the flashing light has no use anymore and when the construction is done on the courthouse square it will come down.
Other business was called for and there was none.
Reports from the Mayor and different Committees and Department Heads brought out issues with the signs at the Brown Spurlock Park. There talked about the columns being built back and the lettering on the main sign being refurbished.
The mayor then called for the meeting to be adjourned.
