MINUTES of REGULAR SESSION
of the BOARD of COUNCIL
of the CITY of RUSSELLVILLE
held APRIL 5, 2016
The Russellville city council met in regular session on Tuesday, April 5, 2016, at 5:00pm, in city hall. Mayor Mark Stratton presided over the meeting with council members Jimmy Davenport, Pat Bell, Sandra Kinser, Jack Whipple, Larry Wilcutt and Darlene Gooch present.
The mayor explained that Bob Riggs, City Clerk/Treasurer was out sick and Gerri Kemp, Assistant City Clerk, is sitting in for him.
Davenport moved, seconded by Bell, to approve the minutes of the last council meeting held on March 22, 2016.
The mayor asked for any corrections or deletions.
Wilcutt asked if the second paragraph on page two could be removed before approval; he did not think it was necessary for the minutes. The mayor agreed it should be removed.
The roll call to approve the minutes with the deletion was unanimous.
The mayor had no appointments at this time.
Under committee reports, Pat Bell gave an update on the Fire Department. There had been 130 total runs for the month of March and 381 total runs for the year. Dale Shields has been appointed as the new Captain for the department, replacing Charlie Logan who retired.
Kemp gave the financial report for the month.
The mayor reported the plans had finally been situated to the state for the next phase of Streetscape. We should hear back from them within two weeks and they should put it out for bid.
In referring to the financial statement Wilcutt said he saw where the Bond Reserves both have large increases but no off-setting deceases; where did those funds come from? Kemp said she got those figures from the bank statement today and Riggs did something with them that she did not know about. She said those numbers were strictly from the bank statements.
The mayor said he thought there were a couple of Logan-Todd bills that still had to come out of the Water/Sewer.
There was no old business on the agenda.
Under new business was the surplus property list. The sale will be April 29th at 10am at the warehouse on Nashville Road. The mayor said if the council has had a chance to look at the list he would entertain an motion as listed as surplus.
Kinser moved, seconded by Whipple, to approve the list of surplus items; the motion passed unanimously.
There was no need to go into executive session.
Whipple moved, seconded by Kinser, to adjourn the meeting; the motion passed unanimously.
