The Brundidge City Council met Tuesday night at Brundidge City Hall for a planned public hearing prior to its regular meeting to consider the rezoning of properties located at 121 and 123 Galloway Road from B-1 Neighborhood Commercial to R-1 Low Density Residential.

The planning commission’s recommendation was to approve the rezoning of the properties, However, none of the parties involved attended the public hearing so no action was taken by the Brundidge City Council at its regular meeting. The council considered and approved the canvass of the Brundidge Municipal Run Off Election on Oct. 6.

The Brundidge City Council members who will serve the city for the next four years are: Isabel Boyd, mayor; Douglas Holland, District 1; Latisher Hall, District 2; Margaret Ross, District 3; Byron Gaynor, District 4; and Marilyn Rodgers; District 5.
