In a very brief meeting Tuesday afternoon, the Brundidge City Council discussed several items.

Regarding a matter discussed at the Nov. 7 meeting, the council made a decision based on a request by Jerusalem Temple which has requested use of Galloway Park for open air services.

The request did not specify dates, but asked permission to use the park at least once a month and the center in times of inclement weather.

Brundidge Police Chief Moses Davenport said the city has been closing the part at dark because of "problems" and the police department would need to know specific dates in order to provide security.

Based on that, the council decided to send a letter stating the church will have to sign up for use of the park, just like other groups.

"We’ve got to be fair to everybody," Mayor Jimmy Ramage said.

Decision on another matter brought up at that same meeting earlier this month was tabled.

John Sutton approached the city council about renaming Adams Drive to Sutton Drive.

"Once we rename streets, we open a can of worms," Councilwoman Isabel Boyd said at the Nov. 7 meeting. "We have named streets, but we’ve never renamed one."

The only other item on the agenda was that of the dedication and ribbon cutting for the city’s nutrition center, Brundidge Station, which will be held at 10 a.m. on Nov. 29.

Council members also wished luck to the Pike County High School Bulldogs who will play at Washington County Friday night in the 3-A playoffs.

The next council meeting will be at 4 p.m., Dec. 5.
