The Board of Mayor and Aldermen will meet in a special called session on Thursday evening, December 27, at 6:00. The only item on the agenda that I’m aware of is to authorize funds to re-work / reconfigure the traffic light control cables on Main Street in front of the new Farmers & Merchants Bank so that the existing electric poles can be removed.
At a called meeting, only the items listed on the published agenda can be discussed.
The Town of Gibson is making a name for itself throughout the state. When nearly 79% of your city’s revenue comes from speeding tickets, something is wrong. Gibson, Tennessee collected $497,878 in General Fund revenue in 2010-2011. Of that, 78.8% was collected by the police department — speeding tickets and court costs prop up the budget of Gibson, Tennessee. (more…)
At the December 10 regular Board meeting, the board awarded a bid for a dipper sampler at the wastewater plant, and contracts for professional services for the upcoming CDBG grant. Also, street department trucks were declared surplus and will be sold to the highest bidder, and a surplus truck will be purchased for the street department. The City Recorder was given authorization to pay bills before late charges are incurred, and money was authorized to conduct smoke testing and repairs on the west side of town. Finally, money was allocated for landfill cleanup, and the bid for sidewalk renovation was awarded. (more…)
The Street committee met before the regular board meeting. I’d initially thought we’d discuss easements/permission to operate on private property. That didn’t come up at all. What we did discuss:
Once again, it looks like we’ll have a pretty light meeting. A couple of bids, and reconsidering a purchase order that was postponed from last meeting. It’s possible Alderman Younger will resign in preparation for his taking office as mayor as well. (more…)
This Monday, in addition to regular business, the board held a public hearing on a CDBG grant application, got some great news about the landfill, opened sidewalk bids, and discussed grass breaking through the newly paved walking track at the park. (more…)
At our called meeting on Monday evening, there were only a few items of business including an authorization to purchase a truck from State Surplus for the Park Superintendent, authorization to repair the tornado siren, and some discussion about the landfill. (more…)
This is a follow-up to my post, “One question about our Street Dept safety violation…” from last week.
I’ve not received an official notice yet, but the city’s online calendar shows a Special Called Meeting of the Dyer Board on Monday, November 19 at 6PM.
