With all members present, except Councilman Royce Benefield, the Haleyville City Council met at the Neighborhood Facilities for their regular bi-monthly meeting Tuesday evening. The council approved the general operation bills for January for $386,020.52. A negotiated construction loan with Traders and Farmers Bank for the new city hall and and fire station was approved. While the loan can be drawn against for 20 years, the amount of the loan was not specified in the resolution. 

Bids for two unneeded police cars were approved with one bringing $450 and the other $350. See RES#2015-09 below for the winning bids.

Calvin Cassidy, engineer overseeing the construction of the new firestation, suggested waiting a couple of weeks before accepting the bids for phase II construction at fire station. He stated he thought he could get a better price, particularly on the plumbing. 

A resolution to enter into an agreement with Winston County for the purchase and operation of a drone was taken off the agenda. The issue of rezoning the Dobbs property on Newburg Road was not on the agenda and was not discused or considered. 

The next scheduled meeting of the Haleyville City Council will be Monday, March 2, 2015, at the Neighborhood Facilities Building.
