Monday night I was chided by one Council Member for wishing everyone a happy holiday season, instead of the presumably more Christian greeting, Merry Christmas. I was just being nice and was not part of War on Christmas. For the record, I oppose schools and muicipalities banning the naming of pageants, parades and trees after Christmas.
Indeed, I fully support everyone having a merry Christmas.....in fact a very merry and joyous Christmas.
On other things, as you see by the link, Council OK'd the Creekwood Apartments tax deal. We also completed annexation of a small city owned parcel on the southern border of the City. We agreed on a new methodology for evaluating the city manager and city clerk.
A measure to attach a name a street through the middle of the Fairgrounds was tabled. How about the Middle Road ? That's what it is.
Council agreed to listen to an alternative on the Woodruff site access road and the nomination of Matt Doheny to the Library Board was approved.
Some cub scouts were on hand to earn their civics merit badge and firefighters Troy Chisamore and Jeffery Narrow received awards for heroic actions in saving a life at a fire.
Various perfunctory resolutions were passed, and yesterday I signed the deed on the sale of that much talked about land to Friendly's Restaurant and construction is expected to begin in the spring.
