New Accounting Clerk, Caroline Thompson, with Mayor Sunseri, Council, and Christy Harbin, City Clerk
The Haleyville City Council met Tuesday with all members present. The Council approved a resolution supporting the protection of local control over public streets and public assets. This was in response to recent actions by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in 2018 which took unprecedented, sweeping action to prevent local governments from effectively managing public assets and to severely compromise their ability to to manage the public streets effectively and equitably and requires local taxpayers to subsidize the use of public streets and other public assets by the wireless industry. This resolution supports a U.S. House Bill to overturn the FCC’s actions.
Following a public hearing just before the regular Council meeting, A tax abatement was approved for the new Cazadores Mexican Restaurant, which is under construction on Highway 195. The Council also approved amending the City’s sales tax ordinance to correct any language and clerical errors in the original ordinance.
The Council approved advertising for one full-time and 2 seasonal Park and Recreation employees plus lifeguards for this summer.
The next meeting of the Haleyville City Council was moved from Monday, February 18 to Tuesday, February 19 due to the President’s Day Holiday on the 18th.
