The Grayville City Council met on Monday night to close out September with a short meeting.
The Council approved the adoption of a new time clock system for city employees on a month to month basis on a 4-1 vote.
A ceremonial resolution supporting construction of a resort at Walker’s Bluff near Carbondale was passed unanimously.
A payoff of $48,064.05 to end a farm lease agreement was unanimously approved, and the updated City Ordinances were approved.
The Grayville VFW will be accepting donations at the four way stop for Poppy Day on Saturday, October 15 from 8 am to noon. A rain date of October 29 was also approved.
Keith Botsch of Botsch and Associates presented the Council with the Fiscal Year 2016 audit and reported that City finances were in overall good shape. The City exceeded the proposed revenue in the budget, but also spent more than was planned. Botsch credited most of the cost excesses to capital outlay for the I-64 plaza, but did state that the City overall increased its cash flow and was pleased with the financial picture, noting that the investments the Council has made are already showing positive returns.
The meeting adjourned at 7:35 pm and the City Council will meet again on October 10th.
