Grayville City Council votes to update city code book

The Grayville City Council met for their second July meeting on Monday night, and swiftly moved through a short agenda.

Approval was unanimously given for the publishing of the updated code book for the City by American Legal Publishing.  The cost given was between $3900 and $4900, but was necessary due to the City’s codes not being updated for several years according to Mayor Joe Bisch.

The Council also unanimously approved a resolution to temporarily close Route 1 from 3 to 4 pm on September 3 for the annual Grayville Days Parade.

A motion to install new security cameras at the Police Department was tabled pending more information from the three companies that submitted bids.  The measure will be taken up at a future meeting.

City Attorney Jay Walden told the Council members he was in the process of drafting letters to property owners on the east side of Route 1 about tree and brush cleanup that will take place now that the State has given the City permission to proceed.

Oil revenues for the month totaled $666. 78 according to Commissioner David Jordan, and Commissioner Andy Brock informed the Council that progress is being made on the low pressure monitoring system on city gas lines, and that the City had received a good report on the yearly leak survey.

The meeting adjourned after only six minutes, and the City Council will meet for the first time in August on the 8th at 7pm.
