After that the Council discussed at length, with local artist Tiffany Beal, about painting the Downtown mural. Beal, told the Council it will last about 20 years and will take almost 3 months to finish. It will be on a wall coming into the city of Piedmont. The Council will use AME Project Fund money to pay for the mural. The mural will be 40 by 20 and the cost will be $16,000. The Council approved this.

Next on the agenda was Fagan’s Park which was tabled until the next meeting in two weeks. The Council then approved Shannon Ray for a five year appointment to the Piedmont School Board.

The Piedmont Parks and Recreation Supervisor, Jeff Formby, addressed the Council about the Civic Center Remodel Cost Projections. He told the Council there is a termite problem in that building.
