A $500 grant will go toward adding trees at Thorsby’s Sam Bentley Park.

Mayor Dearl Hilyer announced the grant at Monday night’s council meeting. The funds come from Alabama Power Company’s Good Roots program.

In other business, the council took the following actions:

•Voted to accept Bryce Circle subdivision into the town.

•Moved the council’s next scheduled meeting to Tuesday, Jan. 17 at 6 p.m. The meeting was moved from Jan. 16 because of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
