The Brundidge city manager had good news for the Brundidge City Council Tuesday afternoon regarding the financial condition of the city.

Britt Thomas reviewed the Financial Statement for the year ending Sept. 30, 2012. Thomas said the report was good throughout with one exception.

“What the report said was that we need more people working at city hall to handle the volume of work,” Thomas said. “But I don’t know where we would them.”

Every office in the city hall is filled and Thomas said the work is being done and done efficiently with the present staff.

Thomas had more good financial news for the council members in that the city’s general fund has no debt.

He reviewed the FY2012 September Audited Financials and FY2013 December Financials.

Thomas said the city is ready to advertise for bids on the current Community Development Block Grant that will provide funding to replace the 4-inch water lines in the Caldwell subdivision with 6-inch lines and the demolition of 16 dilapidated or abandoned structures.

Prior to the council meeting, a public hearing was held regarding Southern Classic Food Groups railroad spur project.
