At the beginning of the meeting, Brazil Mayor Brian Wyndham said he appreciates all the council's work.
"We are progressing, and that's largely because of this group," Wyndham said. He told the council he is looking forward to 2013.
Next, the council passed Ordinance No. 1-2013 on the first reading, which allows a health insurance buyout for city employees interested. Employees who choose to opt out of the provided insurance, after showing proof of insurance, will be paid monthly, totally $1,000 per year.
Meanwhile, City Attorney Traci Lawson told the council two resolutions had the same numbers in 2012 -- Morris Manufacturing tax abatement and the OCRA grant for Serving on the Streets (S.O.S.) with the name Resolution No. 10-2012.
The council changed the S.O.S. resolution to Resolution No. 10.1-2012.
In addition, the council changed the meeting minutes from May 9, 2012 to change the resolution number.
Ann Bradshaw was absent from Wednesday's meeting.
The council agreed to keep the meetings for 2013 set as the second Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m., with the fourth Wednesday as a back-up date.
