"A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives."

Paint Rock, Alabama July 10, 2018 - Paint Rock Town Council Meeting

Mayor Fisk, left and Mrs. Johnson City Clerk, right - Kudos to Mayor Fisk for improvements in the City Council decorum and controlling the meeting. One suggestion, insure the council members votes are heard verbally, they need to speak out not "whisper" their vote. Agenda topics and discussion were heard and distinct. Great improvement!

Old Business: 1) Followup on drainage problems within city, discussion on grants. Mayor Fisk stated that the town could only apply for one grant at a time.

New Business
1) Discussion of hole at old town hall site, needs filling in, ask for council member input. Contractors and names to perform the work were discussed.
2) Phone system for Town Hall was discussed. Currently the City Clerk's cell phone is utilized. Need for fixed land line was discussed with cost input and service provider info..
3) Discussion of Ordinance 2816, Town Litter Ordinance. Form for documenting violations was discussed, passed around and approved by vote of the council members. The Mayor had 3 names already on three separate forms in which the council had just approved. Mailing of the forms by Certified Mail was discussed to insure notice. It was decided that three notices would be issued for violations before submitted to District Attorney for action. 
4) Fire Department meeting - The next meeting of the Town Council will be on August 2, 2018 at 6:00PM with the Paint Rock Fire Department at Paint Rock Town Hall
End of Meeting Discussion was opened by the Mayor, first from the Town Council, then from citizens. Meeting was adjourned at approximately 6:30 PM.
