On the Square, Downtown Headland
The City of Headland’s official night of trick-or-treating is actually on Halloween, Oct. 31 this year.
HALLOWEEN SCREAM is designed to make Halloween a safe, fun experience for the children of our community within the well-lit, traffic-blocked & police-patrolled area of our Downtown Square. The evening’s activities include inflatables, games, trunk-or-treating and more!
Saturday dawned cloudy and foggy, but as it burned off it revealed one of the larger crowds in recent Harvest Day memory. The morning kicked off at nine with a welcome from Headland Mayor Ray Marler. Also on hand were Councilmen Michael Roland, Jody Singleton, Joe Falkner and Kendrick Spurling.
As the new fiscal year is getting underway, the Headland City Council adopted the budget that will carry the city through the next 12 months.
"I hope we made all the changes we talked about," Mayor Ray Marler said, asking the council to look over the numbers and make sure they met members' approval. "It's been kind of a busy couple of weeks."
The budget projects total revenues of $3,408,550 and expenses of $3,058,250, for a projected net income of $350,300.
Beautification department gearing up for holidays;
season will kick off Saturday with Harvest Day
They're out there year round. Every day, you can see members of the Headland Beautification Department working in or around the square or other areas of the city. But, as the days begin to get shorter, the work takes on a new urgency. Just around the corner is... holiday season!
With only a few days until Harvest Day, Beautification Superintendent Joyce Simmons' crew is hitting the ground running early each morning. Borrowing a line from "Smoky And The Bandit": They've got a long way to go... and a short time to get there.
