HANCEVILLE – After a vote at the last meeting to create a Cemetery Rehabilitation Authority, the Hanceville City Council on Thursday voted to appoint three members who were approached and agreed to serve.  The members will begin in staggered terms of two, four and six years, so new incoming members will always have an experienced member on the committee.  The Cemetery Rehabilitation Authority will be as follows:

  •    Betty Dover – 2 years
  •    Norman Boone – 4 years
  •    Raymond Johns – 6 years

The council voted to pay all current bills, and to pay two bills to Ramer for work on brush trucks in the amounts of $2784.79 and $2400.02.

Next the council considered a request from Charles Allen for support of the upcoming Hanceville Antique Tractor Show.  Councilwoman Kim Brown brought a motion to amend the budget and donate $500 for the show.  The motion passed.

A motion was made to approve a request from Dana Lisle for a 5K run named the Pi Run, to take place at 9 a.m. on March 11 for support of the Hanceville math team.  The motion passed with notice to be sent to the Hanceville Police Department to close off the necessary streets for the run.

After approving the bank accounts balance sheet and previous minutes, the council adjourned.
