The Sept. 7 Demopolis City Council meeting had a light agenda consisting of board appointments, a budget resolution, and requests for public assemblies.

The first item on the list involved appointments to the Industrial Development Board (IDB). Mayor Woody Collins said that Charles Singleton, Doug Brewer, and Shawn Hall were recommended to Council for reappointment.

Each member has served one term and the IDB wants to keep them in their current positions. The Council unanimously approved the reappointments.
