Town Council tables majority of issues

Tuesday, December 4, 2007

The Center Point Town Council met for its monthly meeting Tuesday night. Because of scheduling conflicts, only three of the five council members could attend.

Dan Brand presided over the meeting in place of President Roy Smith.

The council reviewed the agenda and without a full council present, most of the issues were tabled for the January meeting.

Vice President Sue Griffith mentioned that someone had thrown burnt leaves in the storm drain on Church St., and the blacktop around the drain was broken up.

Utilities Clerk Rosella Clark brought up a miscommunication with a local armed forces reservist's wife about water service. The council voted to cover the charges from the miscommunication.

Clark also reviewed a policy change to charge owners with renter's late utilities, but the policy change was tabled because there were not enough people present to have a discussion.

A reminder was given that payments for water bills can be mailed or dropped off at the bank. Payments should not be delivered to Clark's home.

A member of the election committee reported a 33 percent turnout for the Nov. 6 elections, and thanked Griffith for her service to the board.

The council closed by approving a payment to the Center Point Fire Department, and scheduled the closing of the 2007 books for Dec. 26, at 5 p.m.

Because of the New Year, the first Town Council meeting of 2008 will be held on Thursday, Jan. 3, at 7 p.m.
