Dale King had his request for the city to vacate a right-of-way on his property approved on Wednesday April 28.

King had come before the council April 14 to have his request heard initially. At that meeting it was decided that more information was needed concerning the matter. Councilman Kirt Tatton went to the site and decided that there was no visible reason for the city to retain its right-of-way.

Fire Chief Johnny Powell also went to the property and gave his opinion that the move would not be harmful for the city.

At that time Powell also gave his report for the month which included two fires, eleven rescues, one wild land fire, four community service calls and four department training exercises.

A pack test for wildland firefighting held on April 12 ended with eight firefighters passing the test. Three members attended a wildland training course in Moab and they reported that it was a worthwhile experience that taught them valuable skills.

The fire department is also going to apply for a new water tanker with a grant request that is being put together with the help of Councilwoman Amber Adair.

Mayor Ben Blackburn reported to the council that after visiting a storage facility used by the city he discovered heavy equipment that the city could liquidate.

The council agreed that if other items are in a condition to sell than they should be put up for auction.
