On another street and traffic matter, the council approved closing the crosswalks on Main Street in front of Centre Elementary School which has been a topic of discussion for the past few months.
According to reports, a recent accident involving a vehicle, which slammed into a Centre Police Patrol car, and then coming to rest against the school sign, promoted officials to close the crosswalk once and for all.
Fortunately, no injuries were reported.
During the meeting, Centre Mayor Tony Wilkie read letters from both Dr. Trina Wood, acting superintendent, Cherokee County Schools, and Brian Johnson, principal, Centre Elementary School, requesting that the crosswalks be closed.
The council agreed to contact the Alabama Department of Transportation about closing the crosswalks since the road is officially a state road. In the meantime, police will continue to remind parents and students that the crosswalks are no longer in use.
The council re-appointed Mary Lee Tucker as city clerk for the next four years, re-appointed Kirk Blankenship as police chief, re-appointed Kevin Ware as fire chief, re-appointed Al Shumaker as city attorney and William (Bill) Hawkins as city judge.
The council also re-appointed Mayor Tony Wilkie and Council Member Phillip Roberts to serve on the Dekalb-Cherokee Gas Board.
The council renewed its current spending policy, which allows the chairman of each committee to spend up to $500 and up to $1,500 with the approval of the mayor and one other council member.
In other business, the council:
-Discussed accepting a road in Cherokee Estates into the city system but took no action at this time.
