The Auburntown City Council met Sept. 4 for its regular monthly meeting. Mayor Roger Turney and all Councilpersons were present except Frank Patrick and Beth Hancock.
The previous month of August minutes were approved as presented without corrections.
The financial report was presented, reviewed and approved without dissention. Balance of funds on deposit as of August 31, 2012 was $40,411.83
Red Apple Day celebration was reviewed and a financial sheet of expenditures and receipts was discussed. The report indicated that the event was well attended in spite of the rainy weekend. The financial sheet indicated that the two-day event ended in the black with a small amount of funds remaining to meet any obligation that yet may be submitted.
The event is not designed or considered to be a money-maker but to show goodwill, community promoting, and the value of living in the northern area of Cannon Co. To accomplish these objectives the City will seriously debate the pros and cons of limiting the event to just one day instead of the two traditional days.
A discussion followed the announcement that a large tract land is being cleared West of the city on Hwy 96. These tracts are thought to be suitable for building homes. With the construction of dwellings should increase the population density and make some of the business that have passed over Auburntown, to now take a second look -- noticeability home supplies, services, etc..
Two students of Mr. Freddy Curtis from Cannon Co. High School monitored this session, namely Catie Adams and Brandon Harper.
The session ended at approximately 6:45 PM.
