The council also approved Corey Phillips for the reserve officer program.

For the street department, superintendent Kenny Barrett said repairs to the town’s garbage truck are halfway complete.

Barrett said the department filled potholes on Mulberry Street and discussed residents’ complaints regarding sections of Reynolds Street that need to be repaired.

Barrett said he has patched the street numerous times over the past year, but the damage from rain and constant use has continued to deteriorate the pavement.

“We need to re-do that whole street down there, but we don’t have the money to do that,” Mayor W.C. Hayes said.

The council also approved sending a letter to a property owner on Mobile Street in violation of a town ordinance stating livestock must be at least 300 feet away from any residence.

In other business, the town:

•Approved a $13,500 quote from Paul Smith of Steadfast Enterprises for the Foshee house roof.

•Discussed drawing up guidelines and an application for groups wanting to hold roadblocks for fundraising purposes.

•Approved switching insurance for town employees from United Health Care to BlueCross BlueShield.

•Approved increasing the town’s annual donation of $800 to Child Protect Children’s Advocacy Center to $1,000 this year.

•Approved purchasing a quarter-page ad in The Clanton Advertiser’s Kickoff Weekly magazine for $275.
