Harmony looks for town marshal

Wednesday, June 6, 2012

The Harmony Town Council is going to be looking for a new town marshal once again, as current town marshal Bob Parr tendered his resignation at Tuesday's monthly meeting.

In a letter of resignation sent to the council, Parr cited a busy schedule as his main reason for leaving the position.

Council President Janice Gooch read the letter to the council.

"It has been a great honor to serve the community of Harmony as the town marshal for the past many years," she read. "As many of you know, I am owner of my own business, which takes most of my time and effort at this point."

Parr wrote he felt it was in the best interest of the community to resign so the position can be filled by someone who can devote the appropriate amount of time and effort to the job.

The motion was made for the council to accept Parr's resignation and it passed unanimously.

At this time, no decisions have been made regarding the filling of the now open position.

Meanwhile, the council OK'd for portions of Harmony Park to be paved, sealed and for cracks to be filled where necessary by Minor Asphalt.

The areas where work needs to be done are on the south side of the park and include the parking lot, all the walkways and the entrance.

According to Minor Asphalt, the work should take two days and the council agreed to have the work done on the least busy days, which are Thursdays and Fridays.

The motion to accept the bid -- which totaled $3,350 -- was made and passed unanimously.

The date the work will start has not been scheduled, but the council will notify the public when the date is confirmed.

The council also passed Ordinance No. 2-2012 unanimously, which is regarding anti-nepotism.

The Harmony Town Council meets regularly the first Tuesday of every month at 7 p.m., in the Harmony Community Center.
