Shutdown Possibility Looms Over Auburntown PO
Tuesday, September 6, 2011 7:50 pm
The Auburntown City Council met Tuesday, September 6, 2011 at 6:00 p.m. for their regular monthly meeting. The Mayor and all councilpersons were present.
The City Recorder presented a copy of the previous month’s business meeting for approval. After a brief review the minutes were approved as presented.
The financial statement ending August 31, 2011 was passed out for review and approval. The report was approved without change or question.
The recent Red Apple Day activities were discussed. A very favorable report was given. However, the financial report has not been completed but should be ready for the next council meeting.
No new information on the closing of the Auburntown Post Office. In the meantime, the trouble encountered by the US Post Office is even more troubling. Post Office officials have inquired regarding a meeting place should a public hearing be needed.
Fund raising by the Volunteer Fire Dept. was discussed at length. They have decided that with the last August Fish Fry, they will no longer be conducting the monthly event. However, plans are being made to go in another direction in conducting fund-raising activities for the Dept.
Matthew Thomas and Mark Thomas, students at CCHS Civic Class, attended and monitored this session.
The meeting adjourned at 6:17 PM.
Winfred Gaither, City Recorder
