Council 'generates' plan
The Headland City Council is looking into the purchase of a new generator. Costs reported were $4,000 to $9,200, respectively, for one-phase and three-phase fuel models. The council will be looking into the numbers for a natural gas model, as it burns cleaner and is easier on machinery.
A new bus will soon be coming to the Burdeshaw-Solomon Senior Center, replacing the vehicle totaled in an accident last fall. Insurance paid $39,500 on the vehicle, with the total cost of a new one to be $41,051.
The council accepted a low bid from Carpetland USA for new carpet in the Solomon Library meeting room.
The council approved the use of the lower portion of Douglas Park for the Thornton Family Reunion June 20-22 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and the square for an April 12 Easter gathering and cross-bearing event sponsored by Wings of Deliverance Church.
Jim Geisler, Lt. Dennis Cobb, and Councilmen James Williams, Jr., and Joe Falkner were appointed to the city's animal control board. Donna Medina was appointed to the planning commission from an alternate position. James Durr will take the alternate position.
Striping will begin soon on the repaved portion of South Main Street. Speed bumps to be included with paving work on other city streets will also begin in a few weeks.
