DODGE CITY – Cullman County Sheriff Matt Gentry was the special guest at this month’s Dodge City Town Council meeting. Gentry brought forth to the council a contract to renew a yearly agreement which provides a deputy to Dodge City, namely, Sgt. David Nunn.  Said Gentry, “Our vision and our goal is to provide a service to the town, and I hope it does for the community and town.”

The council approved the contract renewal unanimously, with no changes from last year’s agreement.

In old business, the council unanimously approved a bid from Hawkins Heating and Air for $5,850 to repair the heating and cooling unit in the senior center.  Work should be completed before the July 16 dance hosted by the center.

In new business, the council entered an at-length debate over installing street lights near a recently annexed property owned by citizen Don Johnson. The debate stemmed over the road being a state road, but some council members argued that the town has installed lights on state roads before. The council took no action, instead opting to conduct more research on the matter.

The Dodge City Town Council meets on the second Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. at Dodge City Town Hall. The public is welcome to attend.
