Mayor’s report and comments:
     Mayor Wolff directed Council person Upton to discuss with Sheriff Brock the current cost of housing inmates in the local jail facility.  Current cost is $45.00 when first booked, regardless of time, then $40.00 per day afterwards.  Chief Simpson recently attended a conference where the subject of jailing cost arose.  Chief Simpson reported back that some counties are charging $10.00 to house inmates. 
 
Old Business:
     The position of Parks and Recreation Supervisor was discussed.  It was noted that the salary would be listed as between $35,000-$40,000.00 when they advertise.
     It was also noted that Mr. Brian Martin, current city employee, is acting as the supervisor now and is doing a superb job.  Council person Upton recommended Mr. Martin take over as the supervisor with a $200.00 per week raise.  It was pointed out this move would fulfill the need for the Parks and Recreation Supervisor and save the city approximately $30,000.00 per year.
     Council person Davis opposed the idea and it was tabled for later discussion.
 
     The Waffle House donated the sewer lines and right of way to the city.  Motion to accept made by Council person Upton, seconded by Council person Skinner.
 
New Business:
     The current gym contract is expired.  It was discussed that Council person Upton talk to Dr. Byrd, Superintendent of Education, about giving the gym to the city.  Currently the city bears all responsibility for the maintenance, upkeep and supervision at the gym, why not own it?  For action.
    
     The Bo Campbell Rodeo was next on the agenda.  The city will pay the initial cost of the rodeo for the Chamber of Commerce and will be reimbursed after the end of the Sausage Festival and Fly-in.  This same procedure was followed last year with no problems.
 
     The position of Magistrate was discussed.  It was determined the city council should review the applications and forward their recommendations as to the best qualified.  The final determination will be made by Mayor Wolff and Chief Simpson.  The magistrate’s position is currently being filled by magistrates from Monroeville who are being paid $12.00 per hour.
Accounts Payable:
     Received unanimous vote to approve.
