    The Haleyville City Council met Monday, May 2nd with all members present.  The council voted on four items that were on the regular agenda.  The council voted to accept a proposal from Great Southern Recreation for the installation of the artificial turf at the Heart of Haleyville Park being built downtown. Council member Drew Thrasher voted against the resolution, with all other members voting yes.  With the resolution’s approval, $10,185.00 will be allocated from Haleyville’s General Fund for the project.  Additional funding will be $15,000.00 from Haleyville’s 9-1-1 Commission, and  $10,000.00 from the Haleyville Chamber of Commerce.

    The council unanimously voted to allow bids to be accepted for resurfacing and widening County Road 90 for a short distance at the Botush Industrial Park.  This project will provide better access for trucks and other traffic at Bassett Furniture Industries, a major employer in the area.  The Alabama Department of Transportation must first issue its approval for accepting bids, then project engineers The Cassidy Company, Inc. will begin advertising for bids within 30 days.  Once those bids are received, they will go before the council for review.
