Brundidge Council works short agenda

Published 3:00 am Wednesday, September 17, 2014

The Brundidge City Council worked from a three-item agenda Tuesday and then recessed until 1:30 p.m. Monday when the council will hold a work session on the city’s FY2015 budget.

The meeting will be a Brundidge City Hall.

The council gave Mayor Jimmy Ramage the authority to sign the necessary documents for an E-911 purchasing agreement. Joining the city in the purchasing agreement are E-911, the City of Troy, the Pike County Commission and Troy University. The agreement will allow for E-911 product purchases to be uniform throughout the four entities.

Brundidge City Manager Britt Thomas reported to the council that a 1996 van that was declared surplus by the council sold for $2,950 to a man in Florida.

However, Thomas said the police department’s surplus fleet car did not receive any bids.

The opening bid for the vehicle was $1,000. Thomas said the council might want to consider lowering the opening bid.

Thomas also reported that through the joint efforts of the City and the Pike County Commission, several driveways on Tennille Road have been repaired.

Thomas said pipes were replaced to correct the drainage along those driveways.

“We appreciate the county’s help in making these needed repairs,” he said.

Thomas said the City’s Halloween Festival will be on Oct. 30 rather than Oct. 31 in order to avoid a conflict with Friday night football.

Thomas reviewed the city’s financial ending in July and said the City was tracking well through that period.

Arthur Lee Griffin and Steven Coleman were not in attendance at Tuesday’s Council meeting..
