Priceville supports schools foundationPublished 10:00am Tuesday, June 25, 2013
Priceville Town Council approved a $3,000 donation to the Morgan County Schools Foundation at its regular meeting Monday night.
In introducing the matter for consideration, Mayor Melvin Duran pointed out that the money was pledged earlier in the year but never voted on. Unanimous consent was given.
The Foundation was established in 2012 as a means of providing financial support to education outside of regular budgeted funding. Its focus at present is to help implement Leader in Me programs in all Morgan County Schools.
In other action, the council:
• Approved the payment of bills totaling $28,261.32 for the month of May.
• Approved transportation and other expenses for Mayor Duran and Councilman Tommy Perry to attend an executive meeting of the Alabama League of Municipalities in Montgomery on July 25.
• Approved $495 for registration, $506 for lodging and other travel expense for Cpl. Jason Wilbanks to attend the Shooting Reconstruction School in Albany, Ga., Aug. 19-23.
• Authorized city engineer Sonny Wright to prepare a bid package for soliciting bids for concrete plant mix for a one-year period.
Mayor Duran set Mon., July 22, 2013, at 6 p.m. for a rezoning public hearing for Allison & Cody Tapscott’s property on the corner of Highway 67 and Friendship Road from an R-1 (single family residential district) to a C-2 (central and highway commercial district.
