RED BAY – The Red Bay City Council voted to take bids for the electrical work at Bay Tree Park during the regular city council meeting held Monday night.
The bids to rewire the electrical system will be accepted at the mayor's office until noon on March 28, Mayor Jeff Reid said.
The council also voted to take bids on a used bull dozer, its financing and a tractor.
The council approved city clerk Linda Holcomb to attend City Clerk Training April 21-24, 2007 at the Alabama League of Municipalities Annual Conference.
The council approved the request for a roadblock on May 5 to help cover medical expenses for Kassie Morrell, a 17-year-old who sustained injuries during a traffic accident a few weeks ago.
"I work with Kassie's mother, and she has not worked a day since the accident. I urge anyone who can to help in anyway possible," Pat Hammock, council member, said.
Police Chief Pat Creel updated council members in the department's efforts to enforce speed limits.
"We have an odometer trailer that we borrowed from Russellville to make people aware of their speed," Creel told the council.
"We are cracking down on speeding."
The council also agreed to pay for half a load of crushed stone for the Dixie Youth league.
The cost of a load is approximately $1,800.
The council also agreed to purchase a new pitching machine for the program since the ones they have are quite old.
"These projects will be funded from the Park and Recreation fund," Councilman Rayford Seahorn said.
