Linden discusses city upkeep at recent meeting

The Linden City Council has been notified that, per a 1984 grant agreement for Shiloh Street railroad crossings from ALDOT, the city must continue upkeep on striping, signage and lights at a meeting on Nov. 5.

Before moving forward, the city will obtain documents verifying the agreement.

The council also learned of limbs needing to be picked up on Mamie and Talbert streets and a pothole needing to be filled on Easley Street. City Attorney Woody Dinning has also been in contact with the owner of a property on Abbott Street, and the owner assured Dinning that the property’s upkeep would be complete within the next two weeks.

Council Secretary Bruce Ward also announced that ChiLLy Fest will take place Dec. 13-14 and that Linden’s Open House will be Dec. 15 from 1-5 p.m.

Dorothy Gamble was reappointed to the Utility Board, as well.

The council also declined donating to the Fountain of Youth Community Camp on the basis of not using public funds for donations.

The city council also entered executive session on the basis of good name in character.

The Linden City Council meeting every first and third Tuesday of the month at city hall, 4:30 p.m. The public is invited to attend.
