Snow Removal Discussed At Downing City Meeting
The board of the City of Downing met in regular session on February 18th with Mayor Jerry Fry presiding. Others present were Aldermen Carol Seamster, Bettie Phillips, Gene Bruner and Carolyn Schmitter, Carolyn Anderson, Tommy Anderson, Richard Buford and Willa M. Gooden.
Copies of the agenda, minutes of the previous meeting with a list of current bills and 2007 financial statement were given to the board members. The agenda and minutes were approved as written and payments of bills allowed. The financial statement was accepted after review and revision. This report will be posted at City Hall and various businesses. Copies may be obtained at City Hall.
Snow removal and equipment were discussed. Parking in the street has made it hard to clean the street after it snows. More streets and the cemetery will be graveled when weather permits.
Closing for our Community Block Grant for demolition should be completely by the end of February.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and easements were discussed.
The Appreciation Days Association paid half of their loan plus interest.
