With all members present, the Haleyville City Council met with only one item on the agenda. After approving the minutes of the regular council meeting of 12/21/09, a report was made by Councilman Richard Bitinger about Christmas by the Lake. He stated over 6,000 people visited the city lake in December to view the Christmas lights, listen to music and visit with Santa. The Haleyville Fire Department members were praised for making this year's event a great success. Mayor Ken Sunseri read a proclamation committing the City of Haleyville to partner with the U.S. Census Bureau to help ensure a full and accurate count in 2010. The council went into a 15-minute executive session then came back in to adjourn. The next regular council meeting will be Monday, January 18, 7 p.m. at city hall.
