Work continues in Woodland Mills to make things look better.
The mayor and board of aldermen learned the painting of the front of the Civic Center should begin on Thursday and be finished on Friday.
Bids still need to be taken for the sign for the Civic Center and the hand-painting of the sign on City Hall.
The board also decided to buy railroad ties to use as stops at the Civic Center to try to keep people from running their vehicles into the building.
After the meeting was opened with the Pledge of Allegiance by Mayor Wade Carrington and led in prayer by alderman Waymon Reagan, the council:
• Learned $152 in 2010 property taxes have been paid and $886 in 2011 property taxes have been paid. Still owed are $167 for 2009, $419 for 2010 and $1,136 for 2011. Charter Communications still owes $15 in utility taxes from 2009.
• Approved May financial statements, including total assets of $7,172.65 in the refuse collection fund, $6,871.56 in the street aid fund, $561,728.42 in the sewer fund and $158,472.40 in the general fund.
• Discussed a property loss control survey and decided it would be best to contact Municipal Technical Advisory Service in regard to the policy. The policy is for cities which have small staffs and is designed to help them comply with state mandates for the auditor’s office. It was suggested by the city’s insurance company.
• Discussed amendments which need to be made to the budget.
• Heard one bid had been received for paving the city’s streets and another needs to be gotten. At least one paver decided not to bid on the project.
• Set a budget meeting for Monday and decided to have a called meeting on June 25 to consider budget amendments.
