Council Corner Catch-Up
April 1, 2014

Mayor Ray Marler presented an appraisal and proposal from Benton Beasley in his effort to purchase 95 additional feet at the old Wex-Tex site. He offered $4,000 for the property. The council approved the purchase.
Marler presented a contract allowing Headland Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Rhonda Harrison to work an additional 20 hours a week at $10 an hour, effective April 1, 2014. The council approved the contract.

The council received a draft of a lease agreement for the old Alabama Power Company building. Marler requested authority to enter into negotiations with owner Scott Holland and scheduled a work session for April 8 for discussion. The council gave Marler the authority to do so.

Mrs. Harrison updated the council on the Chinese Business Symposium and reminded the council of a chamber lunch meeting April 17.

Marler said the city's new insurance went into effect April 1. He also said he had met with Polyengineering in reference to a grant application for bringing some city sidewalks into compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act rules.

The council received an update from the mayor on the Main Street paving project, with the work being 95 percent complete. The mayor also requested the May 6 meeting be rescheduled to May 13 due to the mayor and council's attendance at the Alabama League of Municipalities Annual Convention. The council approved the meeting change.

Headland Police Chief Mark Jones informed the council he had completed the National Rifle Association firearms instructor training to allow him to qualify officers and train citizens in firearm safety.

The council voted to add a street light at 339 Woods Road. Councilman Jody Singleton inquired about new speed bumps, with Marler saying they would be coming in May.
