Sheriff addresses incidents during town council meeting

Wednesday, October 3, 2007

The Center Point Town Council held their monthly meeting Tuesday night at the town hall to discuss matters pertaining to the town.

The first issue addressed was the miscommunication between the town and the Clay County Sheriff's Department during an incident earlier in the month.

Clay County Sheriff Mike Heaton attended the meeting and asked the townspeople be witnesses rather than getting involved in incidents.

Heaton also said that as soon as another deputy is added to the force, three deputies would patrol evenings. One will patrol north of State Road 46, one will patrol south of 46, and one will float wherever needed.

Heaton also suggested that the town look into restarting the town marshal program and take advantage of training that is available through the Sheriff.

The council also passed ordinance 5-2007, which prohibits the existence or maintenance of dangerous or dilapidated structures, junk, noxious or unsightly weeds, or heavy trash on property.

Center Point citizens were then given the chance to voice their concerns to the council.

After all citizen issues were covered, the council moved on to new business.

Voting in Center Point will take place at the Methodist Church on Nov. 6.

Absentee balloting can be done at the county courthouse from Oct. 22 through Nov. 5.

Trick-or-Treat will take place Tuesday, Oct. 30 and Wednesday, Oct. 31, from 6-8 p.m.

The council voted to increase the amount of money allocated for printing labels for water and sewer bills.

The council also voted to increase the Utilities Clerk's salary from $350 to $500.

The next Center Point Town Council meeting will be held Tuesday, Nov. 6, at 6 p.m. at Town Hall.
