The Centre City Council met in regular session Tuesday afternoon with the Council approving a sponsorship to the Weiss Lake Music Festival in the amount of $10,000. The name of the headline artist cannot be released at this time because the contract has not been signed.
In other action, the Council opened sealed bids on the irrigation system and grass project at the City Park. They had 4 businesses submit bids with the lowest being $67,940 and the highest at $167,458. The bid was not awarded with Mayor Mansfield suggesting they get with the Rec committee because the bids were much more than the budget expectation.
The Council approved several other projects including the Farmer’s Market parking area in the amount of $6300, a camera security system for the Hatcher Building in the amount of $6657.18, a camera system for the municipal court building in the amount of $3920.96, approved the Recreation Department purchase Enduro fencing for the Softball fields for $1471.74, and the Rec Department purchase fence crown for the baseball field for $2427.85.
The Council declared a used radio not being used by the fire department surplus and approved it to be sold to the Gaylesville Fire Department for $1000.
The next meeting of the Centre City Council will be the second Tuesday in February, with the planning session at 4 and the meeting at 5.
