Falkville’s Town Council met Tues., July 5, at the town’s municipal building to discuss the Culver Road construction as well as several other items of interest.

Morgan County Commissioner Don Stisher was at the meeting to talk about Culver Road and its progress as the time approaches for the beginning section of the road to open. Crews are working to replace the culvert under the road which will reduce flooding problems in the area. Stisher said the project is on schedule and should be accessible for drivers either at the end of July or the beginning of August.

The Town Council also approved purchasing the Holmes property between Buster and Culver Roads for future projects. The property is about two acres, and the council approved the purchase for $28,750. For more on development in the area see Culver Road construction on Page A-5. The council also recognized one of Falkville’s finest Tues. July 5. Sgt. Aaron Burgess received his certificate for completing the Master/Senior Officer Program at the University of North Alabama. For more on this story, see Falkville police officer honored on Page A-1. Other items on the schedule July 5:

•The town council introduced and approved an Electronic Vote Counting System for the municipal elections. The ordinance (2016-07) will be used in the elections on Aug. 23, 2016.

•The town council introduced and approved the implementation and directives on Condrey & Associates, Inc. pay scale plan. Condrey & Associates “is a human resource consulting firm” out of Georgia that handles about 20 clients in Alabama including the City of Madison and Etowah County. These actions were for Ordinance 2016-08.

•The town council approved Resolution No. 2016-30. The approval is for a contract with the Morgan County Sales Tax Office for collection of sales tax for Fiscal Year 2017.

•The town council approved the renewal of the Annual Park and Recreation Insurance with AMIC/Peck Glasgow for $3,689. The price of that insurance plan was discussed briefly, but the council along with City Clerk Dawn Estes decided they would look into the exact price. The debacle with the price, Estes said in the meeting, had to do with the lack of accidents in the park.
