Priceville Council makes plans for municipal election

Priceville Town Council took steps to prepare for the 2012 Municipal Election, which will be held on Tues., Aug. 28, at its regular meeting Tuesday night.

Town Clerk Kelly Dean was appointed by resolution to perform the mayor’s duties as election supervisor and a slate of election officers was approved by passage of another resolution.

Dean’s appointment followed a decision by Mayor Melvin Duran to seek another term.

Qualifying for five council seats and the mayor’s office began Tues., July 3. The qualifying fee is $25 for mayor and $20 for council candidates.

Appointed to serve as election officers were Linda Reeves, inspector; Jeffrey Mooneyham, chief clerk; June Clark, provisional ballot clerk; Jackie Hendrix, first assistant clerk; Marie Thigpen, second assistant clerk; and Linda Oden and Heather Wilder, both assistant clerks.

The officers will be paid for working both the municipal election and a Runoff Election, if needed, as follows: Inspector, $120; poll workers, $100 each; and each will receive $50 for attending election school.

Council member Sam Heflin has opted to oppose Duran for the mayor’s office and Councilman Donald Livingston said he plans to seek another term. Councilman Charles Black said he hasn’t decided if he will seek reelection. Councilmen Tommy Perry and Larry Waddell were absent from Tuesday’s meeting.

The council acted on other matters as follows:

• Approved payment of bills totaling $122,803.63.

• Approved payment of $76,439 to the Alabama Municipal Insurance Corp. for annual insurance premiums.

• Approved $646.95 for the purchase of a D5100 DX-format Digital SLR camera for assistant police chief Ron DeWeese.
