Council recognizes key Toyland organizers

The Russellville city council wrapped up 2017 with their last meeting Dec. 18. It was a productive meeting that started off on a positive note. They took the time to recognize Hillary Malone Hall and Chase Sparks for their dedication to The Roxy’s Legend of Toyland.

In the resolution that was read, they commended Hall and Sparks for their initiative in contacting the original writer Lanny McAlister, setting up a meeting with the art council, coordinating the marketing, setting up auditions, ordering decorations and costumes and props and working with the police and street departments to ensure the safety of the attendees.

“The Roxy’s Legend of Toyland brought holiday spirit and beautification to downtown Russellville. It showed how the community works together, and it enhanced tourism and the economy of the area,” councilman Jamie Harris said.

The council also:

  • Approved the quote received from Mid-America Roofing for the repairs at the John Blackwell Sports Complex
  • Approved the updated job descriptions in the Russellville Parks and Recreation Department
  • Declared two vacancies for the maintenance/programmer position in the Russellville Parks and Recreation Department to be promoted from within the classified service
  • Approved the contract with Cory Trapp in the Russellville Parks and Recreation Department
  • Accepted the letter of resignation from police dispatcher Micah Hitt in the Russellville Police Department
  • Declared a vacancy for police dispatcher in the Russellville Police Department and authorize advertisement to solicit job applications
  • Held a public hearing to solicit citizen input concerning the rezoning of property owned by the Franklin County Water Service Authority
  • Approved the ordinance to rezone the property owned by the Franklin County Water Service Authority from Multi-Family (R-3) to Business General (B-2)
  • Rescheduled the first council meeting of 2018 to Jan. 3, 2018 with the work session starting at 12 p.m.
