Re-elected officials — City of Maritn Judge Lang Unger swears in re-elected aldermen Randy Edwards and Danny Nanney during the formal board meeting Monday night.
A Martin alderman has been recognized as vice mayor for the City of Martin for a third straight term. It was a unanimous decision by Martin board members to name Ward I Alderman Danny Nanney as Vice Mayor for the City of Martin during their formal session held Monday night. Nanney has served in the capacity of deputy mayor for two terms and will soon begin his third term at the post. In department news, C.E. Weldon Public Library Director Roberta Peacock announced a new step for the library into the 21st Century. Peacock told board members the library will now utilize audio books that are pre-loaded to an MP3 player. Books on tape are becoming obsolete, while books on CD are soon to follow that trend. Peacock said the MP3 books cost the library less than a book on CD and the player plugs directly into a home or car stereo. The pre-loaded players also give the user an option to decrease or increase the speed of the narrator as well as bookmark a location on the player. Martin Police Chief David Moore announced burglaries are becoming widespread throughout the city and encouraged the community to help prevent thefts and contact the department to report suspicious activity. Moore said thieves are targeting vehicles, businesses and residences particularly at night and community members need to lock their doors and keep valuables out of sight. In public works news, the board voted unanimously to discontinue supplying gravel to cover culverts in private driveways and to discontinue the practice of sizing culverts for private property. Board members opted to allow certain police and fire personnel to participate in the City of Martin’s Employee Health Insurance Program after their retirement. Martin Mayor Randy Brundige commented the city has a mandatory retirement age of 60 years old. While sewer and water rates remain unchanged for city of Martin residents, board members formalized a resolution highlighting City of Martin water and sewer rates. The City of Martin Board of Mayor and Aldermen will meet again for a formal session at 5:15 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 12, 2009.
