Thorsby Town Council discusses street lights

Published 9:05pm Monday, October 21, 2013

Street lights were the main topic of Monday’s Thorsby Town Council meeting.

The council voted unanimously (except for councilwoman Nicole Hilyer, who was absent) to have a street light installed off Highway 31 near Alabama Avenue.

Installation of the light would cost the town $1,080.10 up front and $7.76 a month for as long as the light was there.

A street light on Tuscaloosa Avenue was also discussed but not brought up for a vote.

A third street light, this one near Julia Circle, was discussed, and council members wanted a chance to look at the area before voting on the matter.

In other business, the council:

•Changed meeting times from 6 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Councilman Randall Higgins said the later time would make it easier for him and other council members to make the meetings.

•Heard from councilman Glenn Littleton that a concrete wall was falling in at the town’s Scandinavian Cemetery, possibly because of recent rainfall. Public Works Director Terry Jackson said he would go examine the situation and look for a resolution.

•Approved the minutes from the town’s variance board.
