The Brundidge City Council voted unanimously in favor of the Galloway Road resurfacing project at its May 18 meeting.

The council’s May 3 meeting had recessed to allow members of the council to attend the League of Municipalities Convention on May 17, the council’s regular meeting date. A quorum would be necessary to vote on council business.

Brundidge City Manager Britt Thomas said the city will purchase all materials necessary for the $224,000 resurfacing of Galloway Road off the state and county bid lists. The council gave its approval for the city to open bids for the construction phase of the project and for  the rental of the equipment needed to do the work.
