The City of Centre has adopted a resolution in support of the Cherokee County Communication District Ambulance Advisory Committee. The motion was unanimous. The resolution states in part that the City of Centre recognizes the importance of timely and competent ambulance services within its municipality and the importance of being a participating municipality in the Cherokee County Ambulance contract.
The Towns of Cedar Bluff and Leesburg have also adopted the resolution and Sand Rock and Gaylesville are also expected to adopt it as well.
Following some lengthy discussion the Centre City Council voted to adopt their Fiscal Year 2019 Budget during their regular meeting held on Tuesday.
The Council also heard from Mark Collins, President of the Weiss Lake Improvement Association who gave the Council an update on several projects that have been ongoing over the summer including extensive upgrades to the channel markers on the lake.
A motion by Councilwoman Kay Davis was unanimously approving the dates for citywide cleanup week, which will take place this year October 15-19.
City residents can get rid of household items that are no longer needed by putting them out on the curbside. Keep in mind this does not include anything that cannot go into the landfill such as wet paint, tires and anything with Freon in it. Centre Mayor Tony Wilkie is asking residents to take some things into consideration when piling up items for the city to collect and dispose of.
Make sure you keep everything far away from power lines, cable lines and phone lines or other overhead lines; also take care to keep discarded items away from gas meters, pedestals and so on. This will allow for ease of pick-up by city workers and, in turn, will result in your property being cleared faster.
